NOTE: Laverne Arthur Tanner was

NOTE: Dates are based for the most part based on family
records and information on the tombstones in the cemetery. Many minor variations occur, and for the
most part differences found in county records in the courthouse have been
ignored since these legal records do not seem particularly accurate. Several times a difference of a day or
the date of death occurs, and I tended to attribute
these differences to the lack of strict accuracy on the part of the doctor
who made out the certificate and signed it, possibly at a much later date.
