Family of Fields (Capt) COOMBS and Betsey AMES

Fields (Capt) COOMBS b. 1786 Jan541 at Islesboro, ME541. d. 1848 May 20544 at Islesboro, ME541. bd. cem. east side, upper end, Islesboro, ME395.
Betsey AMES b. 1795 Apr 18543 at Islesboro, ME544. d. 1865 Aug 15541. bd. cem. east side, upper end, Islesboro, ME395.

Married541 1814 Dec 26541.
Geneal. Fam. Hist. Maine has deathdate 2 May 1848 for Fields Coombs.
In 1840, Fields Coombs of Islesboro has 1 female, age 40-50 in the household, implying a birthdate for that female of 1790-1800. The 1850 and 1860 census indicate Betsey Coombs was born in 1795 or 1796. Farrow, in the family of Jabez Ames, gives Betsey's birthdate as 18 Apr 1795, which agrees with the census records. Both Farrow (in the Coombs family genealogy) and Little (who apparently tried to use Farrow's information) have "died Aug 15, 1865, aged seventy-nine years and five months." If the "seventy-nine years" quoted by Farrow and Little is actually "sixty-nine," all records are consistent. However, in the Ames family genealogy, Farrow gives her a deathdate of 30 Dec 1869. The birthyear given for Betsey reflects the preponderance of indications. The deathdate is still up for grabs but, in any case, she seems to have died before 1870.
