I am finding conflicting citations for death for my 3rd great-grandmother Hannah Lennox formally Bowes. Her page on wikitree gives a death date of 1835 with a citation to back this date. But Familysearch has Hannah Bowes (9F7F-J9L) with a death date of 1795 with a citation. I found on Ancestry entry in the English and Wales Quaker Birth, Marriage and death record for a Hannah Linnox with a death for her in 1786  https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=7097&h=201723&ssrc=pt&tid=77826622&pid=34373587378&usePUB=true

So which one would be the correct death date and source for my 3x great-grandmother?

Hanna Bowes 1754-1835 married John Lennox 1756-1795. Their son JCC Lennox 1791-1857 born at Kirklinton Cumberland married Mary Gillespy 1803-1887 on 26/5/1831. They had nine  children. One was Hanna Lennox 1834-1835. Hope this helps. I will add to the tree soon! I will add more verifications and details. laugh

That would be the JCC Lennox who buried daughter Hannah in 1735, record above.

It would be better if the citations in these profiles, which appear to be online, had links to their sources, so people could make comparisons. "Ancestry", forex, is insufficient as a source.

The Quaker burial order in 1786 has a definite authority and it clearly identifies her spouse. The spouse would appear to be the key here, but as it is, he is married to two different versions of his wife, who might be two different persons, or the same person with flawed data.

I find elsewhere that the 1835 burial was in Soleport Cumberland, and it appears to be a child's burial, showing Hannah's father. https://www.findmypast.co.uk/transcript?id=R_269790396

One of the two remaining Hannahs was from Cumberland, the other Northumberland. These are not the same place.

L., I, too, am a Bowes descendant. My Bowes ancestors were from Yorkshire.  The earliest I have found is Emmanuel born about 1759: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bowes-833.
