Biography* According to Texas death certificate #37092, "Minnie Lola Bible" died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage 3 Jul 1953 at Anson General Hospital, Anson, TX. She was 76 years 6 months and 29 days old. Her date of birth was given as 4 Dec 1876 apparently based on information from her son, Ray Bible. However, the wife of a grandson, Mrs. Leland (Patricia Ruckman) Miller, wrote in a 10 Jan 1979 letter that Minnie had been born 3 Dec 1876. Minnie's month and year of birth was given as Dec 1878 in the 1900 census but she was noted as a three year old in the 1880 census which would support the 1876 year of birth.
