Elizabeth Beman/Beaman (b. 1762)

Elizabeth "Mary" Beaman was born 22 Feb 1762.  She married Kinner Newcomb (b. 15 Jun 1777, BMN #297) in 1807.

Are her dates of birth and christening (1762) really correct? If so, it would mean she was 15 years older than her husband and that she married at age 45 and went on to have three children, the last born when she was 49. None of this is impossible, but it's statistically unlikely. This requires more research.

The old Newcomb books indicate she was the sister of N.S.B. Beaman, but a descendant of Nathan Sidney Smith Beaman reports that she was his aunt.
