That’s because his wife died 1822, supposedly.

It's because his wife has NO death date.

Thanks Girls

I misread it 

Presumed that the Spouse  was Stagman himself 

Presumption is the mother of all misunderstandings hey :-D 

The  spouse's death date is then, that of his wife. 

I had a hunch I was missing something --- mmm past midnight here maybe the little brain cells are asleep already lol 

Thanks Pat and Marion

It is now very clear  

You are both stars for helping !!

Much appreciated 

You’re welcome
