According to the Social Security Application & Claims record for Irene Oretha Bass (later surname Hardin), she was the daughter of Claude Bass & Nancy Ransaw. She was born 6 Jul 1920 & died 23 Jan 2006.
Claude & Nancy were married in 1915 in TN. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:939Z-Y39Q-7G?i=1632&cc=1619127&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AQK41-N…
Although some records list her birth place as West Virginia, I think she was actually born in Wise Co, Virginia. In 1918 her parents were living in Wise Co, VA according to Claude's WWI draft card
In Feb 1920 their infant son died in Wise Co, VA. It is doubtful that Irene would have been born 6 months later and survived, so the birth date she used consistently might have been wrong.
In 1930 they were living in Marion Co IN. with several member's of Nancy's family including her father Robert Renseau.
