Death Certificate of Nancy J. (Foor) Smith

Death Certificate of Nancy J. (Foor) Smith

Death Certificate of Nancy J. (FOOR) SMITH born 1832. Nancy married Peter L. SMITH in 1849. 1900 census shows she was born in Nov. of 1833. Death certificate shows April 14, 1831. Nancy was a widow when she died, thus the informant for the death certificate was a "L. A. SMITH of Lithopolis, Ohio" who listed Nancy J.'s father as Geo. Foor b PA, and mother as Nancy J. Foor born in Bloom township. I have wondered if this error was simply because when someone asked for the "maiden name of mother" she or he simply gave the info for his/her own mother (the deceased Nancy J.) rather than his/her grandmother (Nancy J.'s mother).
