Pedigree Link

BASIC FACTS

Elizabeth Overdeer was born on 11 March 1842.1 She was born on 29 March 1842.2 She died on 1 December 1859, at age 17, in West Manheim Twp., York Co., Pennsylvania.3,1 She was buried in Saint Matthews Lutheran Church, Hanover, York Co., Pennsylvania.2
Elizabeth Overdeer had reference number 50230.

For some reason Elizabeth does not appear in the 1850 Census. She does, however, appear in the U.S. Mortality Schedules and in the Burial Records for Saint Matthews Church next to entries for her mother and brother. All three died of typhoid fever. There is also a possibility that the Catherine that only appears in the 1850 Census and Elizabeth that does not appear in the 1850 Census are one and the same.
There is some ambiguity as to Elizabeth's birth date. Michael Gulden, in his tree on Ancestry.com, gives Elizabeth's birth date as 11 Mar 1842. This works out to be 17 years, 8 months and 20 days. (Michael says it is 17 years, 8 months and 25 days.) My copy of the Saint Matthews Lutheran Church Burial Records shows her age as being 17 years, 8 months and 2 days.
