Willis Brumfield and Neathie Gatlin Brumfield Part 1

Willis Brumfield and Neathie Gatlin Brumfield



Eddie Brumfield Sr. is one of the children of Willis Brumfield and Neathie Gatlin Brumfield.   
Willis Brumfield and Neathie Gatlin Brumfield
date unknown
Willis Brumfield was born September 15, 1883(1880) and died September 1, 1948 at the age of 64. His recorded date of birth has some discrepancies. On his World War I registration form his date of birth was September 15, 1880. The Social Security application and claims Index 1936-2007 I obtained from Ancestry.com states his date of birth was September 15, 1883 and his parents were Tom Brumfield and Rosa Coward.  In previous blogs on the Social Security System, I have mentioned that there are often errors in information. To order a photocopy of the original Social Security application is $27.00. I do not have an actual copy of the Social Security application but I have a copy of the World War I application.

Neathie Gatlin was born September 23, 1882 and died September 26, 1954 at the age of 72. This information was obtained at the first Jack and Alice Gatlin reunion in 1988.  I was unable to locate a birth certificate for Neathia or order a death certificate. I was however able to find Neathie in the Pike County, Mississippi school census for 1890 and 1896.
1890 Pike County  school census  Netha (Neathia) Gatlin 9 is listed with her father Jack Gatlin and siblings Harriett 14, Edmon 13, Emmit 12 and Loumenda 5
 
 1896 Pike County school record Netha (Neathia) Gatlin 15 is listed with her father Jack Gatlin and siblings Edmon 18, Emmit 16 and Loumenda 11, Rosa
From the school records, Jack Gatlin was father for Neathie. I have also been unable to find a marriage certificate for Willis Brumfield and Neathie Gatlin Brumfield but from the World War I registration they were married prior to September 12, 1917.
