Notes for James White
There are two death certificates filed for him. The first one is only partially filled out. It is certificate no 6194 in book 19, and records James White, age 77, date and place of birth blank, married, farmer, father Georg White, mother’s maiden nane Neley Nickless, birthplaces not known, cause of death heart dropsey, date of death blank, medical attendance from Feb 21, 1922 to Mar 1, 1920, last seen alive by physician Feb 29, 1920 (physician’s section not signed), cause of death heart dropsy, informant J. W. Suetman, Elliottville, Ky, burial Mar 2, 1920, place not recorded, no filing date, no registrar’s stamp.
The second one, certificate no 9976 in book 39, records James White, age about 77, birthdate unknown, born in Ky, died what appears to say Mar 7, 1920 in Rowan Co., married, farmer, father George White, mother’s maiden name Nellie Nickels, both born in Ky, cause of death heart dropsy, attended by S. J. Porter (signed) on Feb 4, 1920, informant Mote White, Vale, Ky, burial in White Cem, Vale, Ky on 3-2-1920, filed 4-2-1920, signed by registrar E. A. Porter.
Considering the burial date, the date of death is probably really meant to be 1 March instead of 7 March, wth an unusually exuberant cap on the 1.
