Virginia Mae "Virgie" Firestone1,2

Female
b. 31 May 1891, d. 12 September 1949


Father Alfred Lafayette "Fate" Firestone1 b. 30 September 1857, d. 12 December 1947
Mother Mary Elizabeth Doshier1 b. March 1862, d. 9 July 1950
Pop-up Pedigree

Family Henry Booker Tennison b. 3 July 1875, d. 16 February 1936
Marriage* circa 1914  Principal=Henry Booker Tennison3,4 

Note*   It is conceivable that Virginia was confused as to where she was born. Census records place the family in Marion Co., AR but when the census records after her marriage say she and her parents were born in Louisiana and not Arkansas. Her death certificate also gives her placeof birth as Marion, LA and not Marion Co., AR. Concidentally, Marion , LA is about the same place geographically in Louisiana as Marion Co., is in AR. It is possible the family moved to Louisiana for a time since there are no census records available between 1880 and 1900 but because her parents nativities are also wrong, it makes more sense that she did not know.
