  • Notes 
    • There is an obvious mistake on Dorothy's tombstone. Her death certificate, census all agree on a birthyear about 1828. The tombstone death date and death certificate death date agree, but the age on the tombstone is some 30 years too early. It perhaps should read 40 years instead of 70.
