Born JAS 1840 she would have been recorded as born 1841 on later censuses had she lived.

Thank you ladies, fantastic as always. This one was a struggle and it didnt help when I looked at other family trees on Ancestry.

I am going to put her on as she died very early.

ErikaH She was on the 1841 census with John and Hannah Parish as 6 months old

Thank you

Yes, I know, Rose.

Therefore too young to have been the one you found in 1861

Tip: Take Ancestry trees with a pinch of salt. Rely on your own research, and what you can prove.
