Some times the stones are hard to read, but I have found this death record it is shows she died the 12 of December not the 17th. Thought you may want to update this record.

Talbot headstones
Thank you for taking the time to find and photograph their headstones. I didn't expect to find the sons too which was a pleasant surprise. I created a memorial for James G at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=147797748 and found one for Robert D at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=86610069 which I've requested the owner to move into Saint James Cemetery as it's burial unknown for now... If you could attach the picture of the family stone to their memorials that would be great or if you'd rather I could do it for you...

Ralph
