Saturday Night Genealogy Fun – Lifespans of Your 2nd Great Grandparents

It’s Saturday, and Randy over at Genea-Musings has issued his weekly challenge to his readers.

Tonight’s challenge is “Lifespans of Your 2nd Great Grandparents”. How it works:

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

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

3) Share your information about your 16 great-great grandparents with us in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, or on Facebook or Google+. If you write your own blog post, please leave a link as a comment to this post.

Here are my answers (I’ve followed Randy’s format).

My 16 great-great-grandparents (shown with their ahnentafel number) are as follows:

16. Paul Janvry dit Belair (1822-1902), 80 years
17. Angélique Lalonde (1818-1900), 82 years
18. Ménésippe Meunier (1829-1883), 54 years
19. Louise Drouin (1835-1890), 55 years
20. Olivier Vanasse (1832-1914), 82 years
21. Elizabeth Frappier (ca 1832-1909), about 77 years
22. Joseph Vanasse (1838-1897), 59 years
23. Marie Guérard (1840-1917), 77 years

24. Pierre Desgroseilliers (1841-1904), 63 years
25. Flavie Lepage (1847-1906), 59 years
26. Joseph Léveillé (1839-1922), 83 years
27. Cordélia Racette (1849-1928), 79 years
28. Pierre Beauvais (1838-ca 1896), about 58 years
29. Arline Deschatelets (1846-1923), 77 years
30. Louis Hotte (1844-1923), 79 years
31. Marguerite Lacasse (1839-1907), 68 years

The average birth year for my 16 great-great grandparents is 1833, with a range from 1818 to 1849.

The average death year for them is 1905, with a range from 1883 to 1928.

So the average lifespan is about 71 years for my 16 great-great-grandparents, with a range of 54 to 83 years. Males average a lifespan of 70 years and females average a lifespan of 72 years.

I’ve shared my information in a blog post here and I’ve left a comment (with a link) at Genea-Musings!
