Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 18, 1769
Sturbridge
Worcester County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Jan. 17, 1854
Portsmouth
Scioto County
Ohio, USA

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.

Persis Hooker and Reuben Lamb married 30 Dec 1788 in Sturbridge MA.

The 1800 Census has Reuben's family living in Charlton City, Worchester, MA.

In 1810 the family was living in Peacham, Caledonia, VT.

In 1815 the family moved from Vermont to Ohio.

In 1820 and 1830 the family was living in Green Twp., Scioto County, OH.

On 10 May 1838, Reuben died and was buried in Gerlach Cemetery, Scioto County OH.

In 1840, Persis was living with her son Abijah Lamb, still in Green Twp., Scioto County, OH.

In 1850, Persis was living with her daughter Nancy Kellogg, still in Green Twp., Scioto Co. OH.
