since Peggy did, I went back and finally found her. They lopped the "H" off
the end of "Elizabeth." Here's Wayne:

> I had looked for any Elizabeth born in 1894 whose father's last name was
"Moss" and still found nothing, but they don't always list the father's and
mother's names. Also, they sometimes differ on birthdates from the SSDI by
a year, and when they do list the parents' names they're often misspelled,
so sometimes you have to be creative in doing searches (using wildcards,
etc.). And as you can see, they often shorten names to fit the boxes, but
they usually don't shorten a name quite as short as "Elizabeth."

> To use wildcards in any of RootsWeb's databases (SSDI, CA, KY, ME, and TX
death indexes), you can enter at least the first three characters in any
field followed by an asterisk (*). I was recently looking for people with
the surname "Killingsworth" in the SSDI and found about 99% of them listed
as "Killingswort." Same with "Hollingsworth." In a case like this you have
to use the wildcard to find any of them. It's also handy for dates since
they're sometimes off by a year (e.g. enter "189*" instead of "1894").
