    Notes 
    • She never married, according to census records and a mention by Rev. Samuel Rankin in his book on Buffalo Presbyterian Church.

      The birth year of 1832 comes from the James Williamson family Bible record. Her marker gives the same day and month but cites the year as 1833. She is age 18 in the 1850 census (24 July 1850), making the date range according to that source 24 July 1832 or earlier. It seems apparent that she gave her "almost" age that day, as her 18th birthday was the next day. (The 1840 census is unhelpful, since only the head of household is named, and the ages are only given in ranges.)

      She may have shaved a year off here and there later in life. She is age 25 in the 1860 census, age 30 in the 1870 census, age 42 in the 1880 census, and age 64 in the 1900 census.

      The weight of evidence is in favor of 1832, using the rule that, the closer the record was created to the time of the event, the more reliable it is.

      Date of death is taken from marker, which may well have the wrong birth year, so verification of the date of death would be wise.
