I previously wrote a post about Sarah Gardiner Lawton here. She was born in South Kingston, Rhode Island to Clark Lawton and Sarah A. Gardiner.
|Death Certificate for Sarah A. Gardiner Carpenter|
Died 29 February 1904
She was married to John L. Carpenter in Valley Falls, Rhode Island on 5 May 1845. She died just over the Rhode Island state line in So Attleboro, Massachusetts on 29 February 1904 of senile debility and thrombosis.
I wonder what the odds are of being born or dying on Leap Year Day.
