Frances M.

Mar. 23, 1938

Buried Fernwood Cemetery, Henderson, Kentucky. Tombstone photographed 23 May 2019.

According to her death certificate, Frances M. Rankin died 25 March 1938 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[1] The death certificate lists her parents as John D. Rankin and Annie Wardlow, both of whom were born in Kentucky. The name of her father is likely an error as the marriage record shows his given name as James E. Rankin.[2]

"Fannie" Rankin, age 6, was enumerated in the household of James E. Rankin, age 50, and Ann E. Rankin, age 46 in Henderson.[3]

In 1930, Frances Rankin was a lodger at 2237 N. 22nd Street,  Philadelphia.[4]
