Joan that's the problem. We do have her death certificat. All it says for parents is that her fathers name was Tom Manning, birth date and place unknown, and mother unknown. It wasn't a lot of help. Her mother died when she was a girl, and nothing is known of her father. I suspect that maybe she was put into an orphanage after the death of her mother, I just don't know.
The mystery depens even more with her oldest daughter Estell Conner. Estell was the living twin. No no in the family knows exactly where she was born. Estell is still living, but she never knew for sure where she was born either. She was only ten when her mother died. I found birth records of all the other children (all younger and born in TX). It was believed that Estelle was born in OK before the family moved to TX.
