An undated image provided by the Johnson County, Ky., clerk’s office shows Loretta Lynn's marriage certificate for her marriage to Oliver Vanetta Lynn, Jr. Newly discovered documents indicate country music legend Lynn is three years older than she has led people to believe, a change that casts shadows on the story told in "Coal Miner’s Daughter.” In Lynn's 1976 bestselling autobiography, she says she was married at 13, moved with her husband to Washington State at 16 and was a mother of four by 18. Lynn was instead married at 15, which was not unusual at that place and time.  (AP Photo/Johnson County, Ky., clerk’s office)
