However the only death reference is for Eliza Lake Bradford Age 37 Death quarter 2 Death year 1878 District St. Olave Southwark County London Volume 1D Page 178 So was she dead and alive at the same time, from 1878-1901+ ? Did David pretend she was still around and just added her name at census time? Did David remarry another Elizabeth secretly, born same place and same year because he figured it would save on the paperwork? Or is there a really sensible explanation? Sandra, who's still trying to sort out earlier errors and discrepancies and appreciates assistance.
