Wednesday's Child: Mary Nevins Gatlin

Mary Nevins Gatlin was born on 30 May 1895 in Nashville, Tennessee. She was the daughter of my 2nd-great-grandfather's brother Clarence Bateman Gatlin and Ella Lee. She was named after her paternal grandmother, my 3rd-great-grandmother Mary Nevins.

Clarence's brother-in-law John Bailey came from Bowling Green, Kentucky for the funeral. His wife, Clarence's sister Lillie May (Gatlin) Bailey, and their daughter Mary Elizabeth Bailey probably came with him.
