The "Vital Records of Sturbridge" (Massachusetts) records her birth date as 18 Apr 1769, which would have made her less than 86 years old upon death - contrary to the tombstone inscription "in the 86th year of her age". When she died, she was actually 84 years 9 months and 30 days, if the Sturbridge town record is correct.
