You're welcome. I found out where the 1946 date and Mahala's birth date came from. They're both incorrect because they belong to Mahala's sister Matilda Artemicia George Reddoch Ragsdale. She remarried after age 50 and, at some point, moved to Hico. She's buried in the city cemetery there with her husband, Hiram Ragsdale (they share a marker). Someone must have been looking at this information and mistranscribed Matilda's information to Mahala. Mahala was younger than Matilda and was probably born in 1857 since this is the date on her headstone and the estimated birth date on censuses where she is enumerated.
