How many birthday cakes does one woman need?


My great-grandmother was born 145 years ago today.  Clara Eva Hettie Ellen Jarvis McNeil (6 Apr 1873 – 24 Jan 1959) spent her entire life in Wilkes County, N.C.

On one of her last birthdays, she had at least 4 cakes and a lot of other food.  Could it be that her 6 daughters were competing to see whose cake their mother preferred?
