The 1843 date is the more likely date as it was recorded in the late 1870s (closer to the actual birthday) and was "accepted" as the birth date by her Mother, Anastasia Colfour Connor. Also, the 1843 birth date would make her just 3 years younger than her husband, rather than 8 years younger, giving her a marriage age of 22 rather than 17.
