Death*22 August 1813She died on 22 August 1813 at Sussex Co, DE, at age 25. Dottie Kahhan, the source of the death date for Ann Burton Bagwell on Findagave, sent the following statement to M.K. Miles on 12 Feb 2021: "I incorrectly put the death date when I established her memorial. According to Hudson & Tatnall records, she died August 22, 1813. - Thus making her calculated birth date as April 19, 1788. However, I see that her dad, William Bagwell's death date was incorrectly created by another submitter - according to Hudson & Tatnall records, he died November 13, 1787 (I have sent that submitter that information). Nonetheless, the corrected information above, still makes her death date, as most probably impossibly - providing that William's date was recorded correctly in Hudson & Tatnall. Since the stone is no longer exists, since the reading back many years ago, or it was read on transcribed incorrectly, it is difficult to make sure we have the correct dates. I will note this on her memorial page."1
