334. Edith Juanita PIPPIN164 was born on 14 July 1919 in Ladonia, Fannin County, Texas.127 She died on 7 July 2008 at the age of 88 in Cleburne, Johnson County, Texas.140

In 1940, Juanita and Jack were living in Pecan Gap, Delta Co TX. He was 22, she was 20 and Mary G. age 2. The enumerator wrote the surname as Dearthergh and gave his name as "Jock" and hers as "Imogine". The next couple's wife was an Imogine - that's the only way I can think he came up with the name. The index was even worse ...but there's no question this is the right coupls.
