There is a mysterious death record for an Annie Elizabeth Sedgwick in Knox County, 19093. I cannot figure out who this is, as Thomas' wife Anne E is still alive in 1910 and reports that she has had only 1 child, and Ristine's wife Elizabeth reports that she has had none. Is it possible that it is an erroneous transcription of Anne Cast/Cash Sedgwick's death record? Is it possible that Elizabeth had borne and lost a child she did not report?
