      Mamie was born Mamie Robinson in Cincinnati on 26 May 1883. This information
      goes back to Sheldon Harris' Blues Who's Who at least, though think I have
      seen any definite confirmation of it.

      She is believed to have been touring as a dancer with The Four Dancing
      Mitchells from about 1893, but this doesn't necessarily support an earlier
      birth date since this may have been as a 'pic'.
