Death: Dec. 16, 1898

*hoping someone uprights the stone*

Birth date from Family Bible shows date of birth as Oct 16 1806 and baptized same month. I assume the mother who wrote the birth date must have known when she gave birth...

Baptism record from Cocalico Church in Lancaster County PA shows birth date as September 25 1806.
We are using the date from the family bible.

Her granddaughter Minnie is supposed to be buried in same plot and she and her husband James.

She shows up on census and baptism records as Magdalene,
and as Mary and Martha in family records and also census.
Same person.

She was a daughter of John Edwards and Elizabeth Walter.
(Elizabeth was born in 1777 in Lancaster County to Heinrich Walter and Anna Eva Hoffman)



Mother of Cyrus, Alexander and Sarah
