Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

The index record from "Indiana Deaths, 1882-1920" lists Elizabeth's age as 63, indicating a birth year of about 1819. This is a considerable discrepency. However, her place of death matches that from other sources. The age in the record may be wrong, or the place/date of death is wrong.
