New Jersey, USA
From the 1930 headstone transcription project originally gathered by Dr. Coy's students;
"native of Salem, N.J., 1857, aged 57".
It does not specify if date (year) is birth or death. There is possibility the old tombstone was transcribed incorrectly, date of death may have been 1867, or the numbers may have been transposed from 1875. Several inconsistencies have been found when comparing the city records to the transcription. Esther does not appear in the city record.
Esther C., husband Joseph (BORN 1811), and son Joseph Lewis (BORN 1840) are in the 1860 census residing in Sonora, CA. By 1873 the father and son are in the Ventura county voter register. Esther shows born in NJ while the Josephs both born in PA. This census lists Esther's birth as 1818, and age 57 in 1875 adds up.
FATHER & SON JOSEPH'S ARE RESTING AT MOUNTAIN VIEW CEMETERY IN WALLA WALLA WASHINGTON
