8.  George W. Wagenseller.  1904.  Tombstone Inscriptions of Snyder County, Penna.  Wagenseller Publ., Middleburgh, PA (facsimile hard copies available from HigginsonBooks.com; online at the Snyder County PAGenWeb site):
p. 274 WASHINGTON TWP., EBENEZER CEMETERY...
p. 275 Straub, Susan, w of Franklin b. Mar. 24, 1849, d June 8, 1882. 33 y 2 m 14 d.
The question here is whether her birthdate was on the tombstone or whether it was simply calculated because they don't jibe; either the day of birth is wrong or the age at death is wrong.

9.  Birthdate calculated using Ben Buckner's JavaScript Birthday Calculator.
Name Deathdate Age at Death Result
Susan (RAMER) STRAUB 8 Jun 1882 14d 2m 33y 25 Mar 1849
(Calculated birthdates should always be prefaced with "ca." you can't be certain the person who calculated their age did it correctly.)
