Tombstone says 100 years old

"Information below and Tombstone are different "

She was quite old but not quite 100 years. She died 1917 and her death certificate says 99 years which would give her birth year 1818.
In 1850 she gave her age 25 (birth year 1825)
In 1860 she gave her age 37 (birth year 1823)
In 1880 she gave her age 56 (birth year 1824)
In 1900 her age was given 80 (birth year 1820)
In 1910 her age was given as 80 (birth year 1830)

Elizabeth (Eliza) J. Fogle Allen was a daughter of Gristel Allen and Nannie Fogle. This came from her Death certificate.

According to her death Certificate her Mother's maiden name was Nannie Fogle, birthplace not known. Her father was reported to be Gristel Allen. Her age was given as 99 years and she died on March 13, 1917. She lived at Willowtown, Taylor County, Kentucky. She was buried in Jones Creek cemetery and the informant on her DC was E. C. Morris.

Her husband was Charles B. Allen (1827-1866). He is buried in Beech Grove Methodist Church cemetery near Stiles, Nelson County, Kentucky.

In the 1850 Census for District 2, Nelson County, Kentucky, Charles Allen was 22 years of age and his wife, Eliza J., was 25. They had one son, John W. Allem age 2 years.

In the 1860 Nelson County Census, Charles Allen was 30 and his wife, Eliza, 37. The children were: John, 12; Ellis, 8; Sam, 4; and Bettie, 1 year.

In 1900 when the federal census was taken, James (Douglas) Jones was family #247 living in the Saloma district of Taylor County, Kentucky. His wife's name is hard to read. It looks like Marie E. or Maria E. They have been married 14 years. They have no children but her mother is living in the household. She is listed as Eliza Allen, age 80, born August 1820.

In 1910 they were at the same Saloma district of Taylor County. James D. Jones was 44 and his wife, Marie E. Jones was 39. They have been married 14 years. Marie's mother, Eliza Allen, age 80 was living in the home.
