The Nims Family: Seven Generations of Descendants from Godfrey Nims

Godfrey Nims (d. 1705) may have been of Huguenot origin, according to a family tradition. He was living in Northampton, Massachusetts, by 1667, and settled in Deerfield by 1679. He married twice, to Mary Miller Williams, and Mehitable Smead Hull, both widows with children, by whom he had children of his own. He was survived by four of his children.

How is it possible for Louisa Phelps to be born and die in the same year (1816) and to also marry Appleton Nims (b. 1808)?

I'm guessing whoever created the profile (me) did it late at night and was tired and not paying attention to details. It has been corrected. Thankyou for bringing it to my attention.
