Conflicting evidence, that he was 62 at the 1850 census, suggests he was 20 years younger. Other records to confirm his date of birth have not been found.)8
     Ann was named as a beneficiary in her father's will made in Orange County, New York StateG, on 25 September 1810.9
     In 1850 Ann was living in Romulus, Seneca County, New York StateG, in the household of her husband Elijah, 62, a farmer, and was recorded in the census as Ann Horton, aged 61 and born in New York.10
     In 1860 she was living in RomulusG and was recorded as Ann Horton, a farmer, aged 70 and born in Orange County. Her nephew Samuel L Sackett was living next door.11
     In 1870 she was living in RomulusG and was recorded as Ann Horton, aged 80.12 Ann was listed in a schedule of agricultural holdings in RomulusG in 1870 as owner of 38 acres of improved farmland and 12 acres of woodland, valued at $4,000. She owned one milk cow. Crops included wheat, Indian corn, oats, and barley.13
     Ann made a will of real and personal estate which was proved at the Surrogate's Court, Seneca Falls, New York StateG, on 2 June 1873 by executor Robert G Ward.14

  8. Elijah's and Ann's adjacent gravestones are matching in style and, being erected more than 20 years after Elijah's death, it would seem possible that an error was made in inscribing his age as 82, the same as Ann's, rather than 62.
