There is a problem with Caroline Eliz. Crossley's census ages, death/burial record age, and the baptism record in FF, OH. The latter state her birth** at 2 Feb., bapt'd. 25 Feb. 1824 at Salem-Glick Ch., Bloom, FF, OH, parents Jacob and Lydia Schleich. It's very difficult to resolve these discrepancies, because either Jacob & Lydia's marriage year was wrong, or the christening year was wrong, or 4 census records showing her age as being born ca. 1822 AND the death record of age 70, were wrong. Or Jacob was married briefly, Caroline E. was his first child, his wife died in childbirth, and he remarried to Lydia Biery.
So one leaves this dilemma to the astute reader to resolve.
