Birth Announcement

This birth announcement clipping was in The Baldwin Times Newspaper (found on newspapers.com) in 1927. My Great Grandparents, Scott and Jessie Cox gave birth to a daughter a couple weeks after their eldest daughter Mary Cox Young had her daughter. I didn’t realize that mother and daughter were pregnant at the same time until I saw this birth announcement. Mary Cox Young was born about 1905, a whole 22 years before her younger sister Ruth was born. I am not sure how close Mary and Ruth were since there was such a large age gap and Mary was already out the house raising a family of her own when Ruth was born.
