Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Life Spans OF My Great Great Grandparents

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun With Randy Seaver And Other Genealogy Buddies

1) We each have 16 great-great grandparents.  How did their birth and death years vary?  How long were their life spans?

2) For this week, please list your 16 great-great grandparents, their birth year, their death year, and their life span in years.  You can do it in plain text, in a table or spreadsheet, or in a graph of some sort.



My 14 great-great-grandparents are, by ahnentafel number:

16. John Henderson Zion (1831-1920), 88 years

17. Mary Margaret Cassill (1834-1919), 85 years


18. Flavious Armenus Millsap (1832-1910), 77 years
19. Anne Woodmansee (1841-1904), 62 years
20. George Wilbur Hall  (1832-1892), 60 years
21. Louisa Maria Reynolds (1832-1899), 67 years
22. John Henry Coleman (1839-1922), 83 years
23. Alta Angeline Cheuvront   (1848-1937), 81years

24. Dwight Henry Day (1829-1913), 82 years
25.  Betsy Ann Anderson  (1838-1938), 100 years

26. John T Lockwood (1840-1911), 71 years
27. Betsy Jane Eddington (1842-1924), 80 years
28. Unknown Daly
29. Unknown
30 Patrick Gallaher (abt 1830-1898), 68 years


31. Joan Riordon (1833-1902), 68 years


The range for these 14 great – great grandparents is from 1829 to 1848.

The range for these 14 great - great grandparents is from 1829 to 1938.

So the average life span is about 71 years for my 15 great great grandparents, with a range of 60 to 100 years.  Males average a life span of 77 years, and females’ average life span is 77 years.

  1. Nice! Wasn't this fun? (And, sorry... I somehow had missed your comment on my blog post!) I think you might have a typo. You said your average life span was 71 with the males being 77 and the females being 77. I redid the 'overall' & I got 77 as the average for your overall ancestors. :)
