I went to Hampstwaite a few days age, and found this headstone which relates to some of my ancestors. Unless I am reading it wrong, the dates for the daughters death don't add up? The mother and fathers dates are fine, but I have the daughter as death 1896, which makes her 27 yrs (which is what it says) but they have her down as death 1836. The mother wasn't born till 1848 ?

Hi Silkrae,

I copied it then enlarge it, even though you can see some of the tomstone has been corroded that was put in as a 3:confused: , whether it was at a latter date or when it was first done, I guess you won't know but at least you have the correct date yourself because you know that she couldn't have been born before both her mother or her father.
