Chris -- I think the correct date of death here is Oct 4 1850.  All of Elijah and Mahala Day's other children were born between 1848 and 1855 and Mahala would have been in her late 40s if she gave birth to a child in 1869.  Most convincingly, HJ Libby copied this stone as Oct 4 185-, age 11 months.  He couldn't make out the last digit.
