!Note: The 6 in the death age 86 was rubbed out as if the writer wasn’t sure and tried to erase it and it could also have been a 0, but then she wouldn’t have been alive for her christening. It’s most likely still not right as I doubt she was born 2 years before her parents mariage. Based on her christening date I think her mother died in childbirth to twins.
