(1) The birth dates are
calculated from the death dates and ages at death. Obviously 2 children born
over a month apart in the same year is unlikely.
The headstones [c] are very weathered. It may be that Charles d. 1841, Henry d. 1848 or the ages at death are incorrect.
*The appearance of Henry Bideler in 1850 (ref e) of age 25 does not support his death date as calculated from his headstone. It must be assumed, however, that he was, in fact,
alive on the enumeration date for that census, 10 Aug 1850. His death would be more accurately be "aft Jul 1850."
