Tombstone Tuesday: Lee Cemetery, Hardin County, Ohio more stones...Lawrence

The tombstones of Samuel and Elizabeth (Spracklen) Lawrence are also part of this cemetery.  Elizabeth was a daughter of Peter and Betty Spracklen and sister to John Andrews Spracklen.

Here is Samuel's tombstone:

Samuel Lawrence Aug. 9, 1881 86 y8m7d

Closer to Samuel's tombstone

Elizabeth Lawrence, wife of  S. Lawrence, died Jan. 7, 1881???
Father and Mother - LAWRENCE

Something is not right with Elizabeth's information.  In the publications I have the information says 1881 and 29 yrs which does not make sense for Elizabeth was born in 1801.  The other publication does not even have the Lawrence's listed.  I am incorrect, they are listed there on page three.  Elizabeth reads 1/18/1881 age 29y4m6d w/o Samuel.  The age of this women means she was born 1852 which is not the Elizabeth Spracklin who was born 1801?  Is it possible the age is incorrect or do we have another Elizabeth? Find A Grave does not have photos of these tombstones.
