Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Elizabeth's age is indistinct in the 1850 U.S. Census. The second digit is a 3, but the first digit is undecipherable and looks as though two digits were written. It may be 3 (making her 33 and only 13 when she married Andrew and 17 when Silvester was born -- unlikely though not impossible), or *maybe* 5 (making her 53). It does not look like a 4, which would make her about the same age as Andrew and would otherwise be the most likely situation.
