Lucretia CANIPE

Burleson Cemetery Cemetery
Mitchell County,
North Carolina

Birth: Apr. 7, 1892
Mitchell County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jun. 20, 1934
Mitchell County
North Carolina, USA

Daughter of Ruben Ledford and Polly Stevens.
THIS Polly born circa 1852; NC and
... she was in an 1920 census, so she
... lived past 1920.

Ref: NC death certificate # 000250
1930 census for Bradshaw, Mitchell, NC
(Lucretia died in Bradshaw Township)

This memorial, as created by a fine graver,
must be noted to have conflicts, between
the gravestone and the death certificate.

Lucretia's death certificate states she was
born April 16, 1891 and that she was going
to be buried in Little Rock Creek, Mitchell,
North Carolina....... obviously, the death
certificate was in error, as they often are.
In fact, her step-son Hanford's certificate
had similar errors, as well.
Ruben F. Ledford (1851 - 1925)

Wallace Lee Canipe (1883 - 1958)
