Images and transcriptions by Linda Boorom on 28 Feb 2006 who writes,

She was born 1814 Augusta Stiles in Woodstock Twp., Windsor Co., VT, d/o Benjamin Stiles & Margery Brewster. By 1818 the family had removed to what is now Symmes Twp., Hamilton Co., OH. In Hamilton Co., on 9 Sep. 1832 she married Thomas Fitzwater, s/o William & Elinor Fitzwater. The family was residing in Clermont Co. for the 1850 & 1860 census & then moved to Pleasant Plain, Harlan Twp., Warren Co.

They had 5 children:
Harriet Fitzwater b. ca 1833 died unmarried 1903 Warren Co., OH Charles Fitzwater b. ca 1835 died unmarried 1903 Warren Co., OH Mary Elizabeth Fitzwater b. 23 Oct. 1840, married Frederick Boorom 1 Aug. 1865 in Warren Co., died 3 Jan 1882 Warren Co., buried Ingles Cemetery, Pleasant Plain Sarah Fitzwater b. 18 Dec 1844 married her 1st cousin Benjamin Harper Stiles 1871 Warren Co., OH died 1904 Warren Co. Thomas Gatch Fitzwater b. ca 1856 d. 190?

Augusta Fitzwater's death is recorded in 3 documents as 3 different dates.
Record of Deaths, Probate Court as reported by her daughter Sarah Stiles it is listed as Jan. 16, 1883
Application to Probate Will it is listed as Jan. 17, 1882
In the Administration Book it is listed as Jan. 17, 1884
At this point I suspect 1883 is the correct date.
