Comment: Source includes date (12 mo. 20, 1701 [old style]). The year 1701 should be an old style date, but given the date of birth of her sister Mary, it appears that the year shown is the new style (applicable to dates after the calendar change in 1752). This database assumes the year was actually 1700 in the old style.
