Mystery Monday: Death Certificate 6824

2016 02-29 Death Certificate 6824

What is Jennie Olivia’s surname?

I guessed. And the FamilySearch indexer guessed.

But since there is no one else on FamilySearch with the same surname, I can’t help but wonder if we’re wrong.

I’m not related to Jennie, but I would like to solve the mystery of her surname.

Can you help reunite Jennie with her family here or on Find A Grave?

Thank you for taking a minute or two to honor her short life.
