KLEES says both Eliza and Sarah MARKS m. Jonas FAHRINGER.

Notice the birthdate of 18 Jan is given same for Elisabeth and for Eliza MARKS but a year apart, 1812 vs. 1813, and the same husband is given, Jonas FAHRINGER. Assume this is same woman. However, death dates are different: Aug 1827 for Elisabeth, 15 Jan 1898 for Eliza — might be real death vs. probate date for her will.

Dau Betsy b. 6 Aug 1827 in Columbia Co PA.

Is this her: “At Cattawissa town, on Wednesday, the 19th instant by Stephen Baldy, Esq., Mr. Jonas BARRINGER to Miss Eliza. MARKS, all of Cattawissa Township, Columbia County.” Note: BARRINGER, should read FAHRINGER? Source: Danville Intelligencer, 25 Nov 1828 -- she was only 15 years old? Also, their first child Elisabeth FHRINGER was reportedly b. 6 Aug 1827, so they should have been married in 1826, not 1828, and she’d have been only age 13.

1860 census Locust Twp, Columbia Co, PA: 1
