She was the daughter of Samuel Jessie and Ida Hinkle Tatum. She was employed for many years in the accounting department of the United States Treasury in Washington, DC and retired in 1955. She moved to Salisbury in the 1960s. An avid genealogist, she published two books: Jessie Tatum and His Descendants and Benjamin Eaton and His Descendants.
