Greetings Everyone,

Hello fellow Oddfolk! Hope all is well with you.

I received a death cert. today for Sarah Odd that is a little puzzling.

Here is what it says:

1839 Death in subdistrict of Sevenoaks in the County of Kent
February 14, 1839, Parish of Westerham
Sarah Odd
74 Years
Widow of John Odd, Agricultural Labourer
Cause of Death: Natural Decay
Informant: Fanny Sales, present at Death, Westerham
Registered: Feb 15, 1839
T. Waring, Registrar

My concern is that she is listed as Widow of John Odd... The only John that
would be old enough is John Odd b. May 24 1761, but I found him alive and
well in the 1841 census:

Holly Bush, Chelsfield, Chislehurst, Kent, England: John Odboy, Age 80, born
in County=Y.

Perhaps this is really Sarah Baker, Widow of William Odd (b. Aug 7 1763),
and the informant got it wrong (seems to fit, age is correct and location is
dead on).

Mike and Judy, both of your ancestry files indicate that Sarah Baker died on
Feb 21 1838... Can you tell me the source you used for this data?

Lin, any ideas?
