Thanks Geoff.

With the family being in a different parish in 1841 and 1851 it's impossible to say what RD fits for John's death.

A tree my have evidence via a death certificate ??

If it is 71 in 1861 and if daughter Grace is with her mother then only one is the one posted with father John a miner.

If Grace is not with her mother in 1841 then search for 2x Grace is much more difficult.

christening:
13 October 1791
GRADE,CORNWALL
father:
William Stone
mother:
Margaret

Grace Stone
christening:
3 May 1789
GRADE,CORNWALL
father:
William Stone
mother:
Margaret

Looks like 1861 is correct and 1871 is wrong and therefore wrong death.
