ok assuming that she was born got married and then widowed at the very end of the civil war, which was 1865, she would have been 138 or so when she died at 2003 and seeing as it was probably frowned upon for a grown man to marry a baby, we can assume she was even older

now i'm not saying it's ******** ...it just looks,feels,smells and tastes like ********

Ur math is wrong. Assuming she was really young when she married, she must have been at least 14 yo when she married. Assuming she married and widowed on the last year of the Civil War, she was born in 1851. By 2003, she was 152. It's just impossible, it would have been a world record of some sort.

except i did it assuming she was married when she was born (which obviously wouldn't happen but just to entertain the possibility) so 152-14=138

Only possible way was he served in the Civil War when he was like 15, he gets married when he's like 50 and she's only like 15.

It's possible, but ****** up.

according to the link in comment 359 thats what happened, though they were married after the civil war ended and the guy was around 89 so i don't see why she be considered a civil war widow if the guy didn't even die in the war

It was actually somewhat common for an elderly civil war vet (60-70) to marry a young women that could care for him. It benefited the women because she knew that when he died she would get a steady source of income for the rest of her life.
