  • source conflict: gravestone suggests a birthdate of 1679 but other sources indicate 21 March 1693. In Geni we are choosing the latter as being more in keeping with her husband's birth date and the recorded birth dates of her children. Please raise a discussion if there is a compelling reason to revert.
