|Susan GABBARD was born in November 1846 in Kentucky. She died in 1908 at the age of 62. |
Two Susans are often confused. They were second cousins. This Susan Gabbard married Daniel Lynch. Her cousin Susan, daughter of Elijah G. Gabbard, married Calvin Lynch. They were different ages, married at different times - had different children.
In 1860, Susan was age 13, in the household of Cornelius B. Gabbard in Owsley Co. The other Susan was age 19, in the household of her father Elijah G. Gabbard in Estill Co. The fact that they were so close in age and lived near each other and both married a Lynch has to be sorted out which is easy to do with the census records.
