Hi

My 4xgreat grandmother Jane Musgrave formerly Sewell was 65 when she lost her mother Ellen Sewell in 1863. Ellen was 86. Jane was born in 1798 so when she had her 65th birethday in 1863 her mum was still alive. Ellen died on Boxing Day 1863.

Mary Newman formerly Boosey was 61 when she died in July 1851 and her mum was still alive aged 82. Anne Boosey died the following January.

My father was 70 when his father died at the age of 97. I have quite a number in my husbands tree that were around the 64/65 age when their father died.
 
Hi
