wife of E. Saunders
died May 2,
1849; aged 30
yrs. 5 m. & 1 D.
If Nancy’s husband was Erasmus Saunders who is buried nearby, then she died a widow, a young widow. His gravestone shows that he died in 1840 at age 27.
An image of a Union County marriage record, available on FamilySearch.org, suggests that Nancy and (yes) Erasmus were married in 1837. Can you read it? Nancy Coodidge? Collage? I’m thinking Coolidge.
