Comment: Source includes limit date of "before 1748" on page 100 and "at the age of about 30 years" on page 158. She would have been about 40 i n1748, so the second is used. Using her age exactly and the birth date of 9 Jul 1708 gives a death date range from 9 Jul 1738 to 8 Jul 1739. Keeping in line with the uncertainty of her age, this database uses "about 1738-1739."
