    Notes 
    • Tombstone says these dates, but says "aged 61 yrs 11 mos and 28 days", so either her birthdate is 6 Oct 1837, or her death date is 30 Sept 1896, or her age is wrong. Seems odd, when it's so specific. The birth year was hard to read on the tombstone; the 4 of 1834 was indistinct.

      Notes from Lois Gaynor (maybe from Rose Hicklin) say birthdate Nov 2, 1821 or Oct 2, 1824, and death date Oct 4, 1899. Info on parentage from these same notes, plus David & Elizabeth traded land with Samuel & Martha [see David's entry].

      1850 census says she was born in Albemarle co. She was 14, so may have been born in Oct 1837.
