Florence Allard Field

  • Birth 20 Dec 1850 Hampton, Washington County, New York, USA
  • Death 18 Oct 1897 West Haven, Rutland County, Vermont, USA
  • Burial West Haven, Rutland County, Vermont, USA
  • Memorial ID 55845317

Daughter of John Allard and Prudence Osgood.
.
First wife of Edward M. Field.
.
Per Carolyn A:
Despite what it says quite clearly on this stone, I believe she was actually born Dec 20 1851, and the family got it wrong whenever they got around to engrave it, probably years later when Edward died.
.
Her death certificate when calculating years months days points to 1851, not 1850.
.
The 1900 census, in which she is curiously listed, despite being dead 3 years, says born Dec 1851. Our family records also say 1851.
.
This is one of those situations when the data nearest the event has to be of greater weight than the later engraving.
.
Have not found a birth record in NY, nor have I tried to find one there, but think this may be within that 3 year window when there were vital records kept.
