Shed, Elizabeth (wid. of Samuel, GR1), Sept. 30, 1826, a. 75y. (Sept. 29, 1826, a. 85y GR1)

If appears the DR and what is supposedly on the headstone differs as to how old she was when she died. Which has her born either 1741 or 1751. 1741 makes more sense as Samuel Shed and Elizabeth Ireland married in Cambridge, MA, on Mar, 8, 1759. (Cambridge VRs, marriages, pg 353)
