     Eunice Overstreet was born on 31 May 1899 in GA.1 She was the daughter of James Stephen Overstreet and Laura Jane Funderburk. Eunice Overstreet was enumerated in the census of 1900 in Decatur Co., GA, in the household of James Stephen Overstreet. Eunice Overstreet was enumerated in the census of 1910 in Grady Co., GA, in the household of James Stephen Overstreet. Eunice Overstreet was enumerated in the census of 1920 in Grady Co., GA, in the household of James Stephen Overstreet.2

In 1920, Eunice Overstreet was the informant of the death ofAda ONeal.3,4,5,6,7

Eunice Overstreet married Herman A. Maxwell, son of Emory L. Maxwell and Eva Butler, on 16 Oct 1920 in Grady Co., GA.8 Eunice Overstreet was enumerated in the census of 1930 in Tampa, Hillsborough Co., FL, in the household of Herman A. Maxwell.9 Eunice Overstreet was enumerated in the census of 1940 in Ruston, Lincoln Parish, LA, in the household of Rossie L. Overstreet (her sister.)10

Eunice Overstreet was widowed on 24 Aug 1989.11

Eunice Overstreet died on 22 Jan 1990 in Greenville, Greenville Co., SC, at age 90 (her Social Security registration was from Louisiana.)1



Some notes on this family:
The record in the New Orleans Passenger Lists, 1820-1945, about Herman Maxwell shows him departing from Cristobal, Canal Zone and arriving in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1939. I would not have thought this was the correct Herman Maxwell, except that his birthplace is listed as Calvary, Georgia.
Eunice Overstreet Maxwell's Social Security registration was from Louisiana (before 1951).
This same form has her last residence as Greenville, Greenville Co., SC (5 months after her husband's death). The birth month and year agree with the 1900 census, and her middle initial is O (Overstreet?).
So they are in Grady Co., GA in 1920, Tampa, FL in 1930, Louisiana in 1939, Eunice is enumerated with her sister in Louisiana in 1940, where it says she is widowed, Herman is buried in Grady Co. in 1989, and Eunice is in SC in 1990.
