  • Notes 
    • According to her death certificate, her "usual occupation" was housewife, and she died of "myocardial insufficiency" due to "old age, malnutrition, dementia."

      Find a Grave contributor "JTS" notes that while her death certificate gives a birthdate of 7 Aug 1850, census records consistently show her born between 1856 and 1860, making 1858 a more plausible guess at her birth year.
