DeceasedShe died on 27 March 1766 in Preston, New London Co., Connecticut Colony, New England, at the age of 79. her grandaughter, Martha Tracy, gives the date as 5 April 1765, in her 64th year, and also gives her married name as 'Tabor', not 'Tyler'- none of which agrees with the entries in the Preston Vital Records, The Tyler Genealogy, or the Cattin Family Tree agrees with the date of death as 27 March 1766... do not know his source for that date, but probably from Preston Vital Records.6,5,1,7
