Is the husband deceased?
If one parent has a death date entered prior to adding children, the entry format for a child automatically defaults to *deceased*. It doesn't matter the birth year of the child entered, unless you changed manually to "living", all the data will present in public trees.
This doesn't hold true if children are entered before a parent has a death date entered.
