The United States acquired Kansas in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase. That would make George Larrison quite the pioneer. And since his daughter wasn't born until 1822 it also makes him a zombie. Being sired by a zombie must give her powers to defy the space-time continuum. She can be born in both Texas and Ireland and continue to live on past her death as her husband. Luckily it was only his marriage records that were added to her profile and not his wives.
The last record above has an alternate name submitted and a comment. They are so very helpful.
Alternate name suggestion:
"Margaret Whitaker rather than William Cox
Her date of birth is wrong. It showes [sic] she got married before she was born. Showes [sic] she got married in 1869 and she was born 1874. That just can not be right, please check this out. Thank You, [name]"
"I believe the spouse year is wrong! She was married before she was born."
Of course it couldn't possibly be a typo and they couldn't be bothered check the reliability of the source.
