Claysville, Dec. 11.—Mrs. Rebecca Owen Carroll died in her home in Claysville Tuesday, December 11, 1928, at 9:40 a.m. of cancer of the liver, aged 77 years, nine months, seven days. She is survived by the following children: Mrs. James Jackson of Claysville R. D. 2. William A. Carroll, Claysville, and Gilbert M. Carroll, Washington.

She was a member of the Claysville Missionary Alliance church [sic] of Washington, and an excellent christian [sic] woman. She will be missed by a host of loving friends outside her immediate family.

Note from Lou:  While we may not be positive of the actual date I am confident her birth month & year is March 1851: 

The 1860 (6/8/1860), 1870 (8/9/1870), 1880 (62/21880) & 1910 (4/28/1910) US Census yield a calculated birth date of 1851. 
The 1900 US Census (6/15/1900) indicates March 1851.

Rebecca (Owen) Carroll's obituary indicates : "aged 77 years, nine months, seven days". This yields a calculated birth date of March 4, 1851.
