Legacy Research Notes

While there is a second marriage documented here for Prudence, it seems confusing and possibly conflated, now, mostly due to the the image of her tombstone on Find A Grave, which shows that she died 5 Aug 1836, having lived 74 years, 7 months, and 26 days, which equates to a birth date of 10 Dec 1761. Thus, the death information shown now is for "another" persona. Preliminary analysis shows that Prudence marred a "Jonathan" Eldredge (1744-1790), and married second Nathan Bacon (1762-1817). Thus, the death and some of the children for the conflated Jonathan Eldredge has been removed, along with the 1836 death date.
