My mom Always was Proud of being the 7th daughter of the 7th daughter.
There is only listed 5 girls and then you. I remember my mom saying that
"Big Momma" had Twin Girls. I can't remember when they came. One was born
dead, the other died a few years or months later. Mom used to tease Gina at
first about her having twins, because twins skip a generation.
Mom ALWAYS said she was the 7th daughter of the 7th daughter and she
believed that is why she was so lucky when it came to gambling and why she
was so good at sports. There is suppose to be MAGIC in that number of being
the 7th daughter of the 7th daughter. So Big Momma "Dolly" was also the 7th
daughter in her family.
Allie in 1910 census reports 11 children with 6 alive
1900 census she reports 10 children with 6 alive
John died 1901 just few months before Dollie born March 1902
Goodspeed bio dated 1890 says 5 children living and Clyde died, but names 6. Only 4 names match 1900 census.
This implys Dollie is child #11 and another? died after 1900 census? maybe a twin of Dollie?
see Dana Glover note about twins.....
