Notes for Nettie B. Eversole
The partial index to Indiana death records compiled by the WPA lists Nettie Ferrand, age 36, died 8 Jan 1918 in Clinton township, Putnam Co., Indiana. Since this is 4 days after the birth of her son Clarence, it is likely that she died of complications from childbirth, perhaps peurperal septicemia.
1900 census of Putnam Co., Indiana, Monroe township, enumerated 11 June, lists on p. 10B as family #224/228:

Merl is the son of Lawrence’s first wife Daisy Hanks, so most likely Nettie was really only the mother of 3 children.
