(age 85)

American child actor. Her parents were married in 1915. Four months after their marriage, they had a daughter, MARGARET, who died in Montana aged 11 MONTHS of pneumonia. Both parents "shaved" a few years off their ages in 1930 and 1940. The Mom was actually about 40 years old in 1932. Patsy has a "legitimate" birth record but NO actual Birth Certificate is posted at Family Search as there are with most CA births. It is possible she could have been adopted? Her Marriage Certificate agrees with a 1932 birth year.
Her married name was Ekdom.
