Elizabeth "Betsey" Gay Tucker
Birth: Jun. 16, 1840
Georgia, USA
Death: Sep. 14, 1896
Colquitt County
Georgia, USA

Although Elizabeth's gravestone says that she was born in 1840, that date is inconsistent with other records. US Census enumerations put her date of birth nearly a decade earlier (1860 Census, b. ca. 1831; 1870 Census, b. ca. 1835; 1880 Census, b. ca. 1832.)

Three separate sources related to Matthew Tucker (Georgia Marriages, 1699-1944 + Georgia Marriages, 1851-1900 + Family Data Collection-Individual Records) state that he married Elizabeth "Betsey" Gay on 25 March 1852. A DOB of 1840 would mean that Betsey married at age 12, which seems unlikely.
