    Notes 
    • Alexander's and Isabella's dates are problematic. His gravestone listDOD as 5/10/1845 and AE 11 years which gives us a birth date of 1833or 1834 which seems a little early based on the dates for the otherchildren but we don't have a firm marriage date for William and Isabeland it's possible if they married young. The Barnet history states hewas born in 1845 and died 5/10/1854 which seems a little more likely although the age on the stone would also have to be wrong.

      As for Isabella, she is listed as aged 14 when she died in 1867. Thatwould give her a birth date of around 1853 which would make her the4th child instead of the 2nd. The Barnet history says she died in1857 at age 11 but does list her after Mary Elizabeth. Either scenario is possible. - AVW
