Immaculate Conceptions in my Family Tree

Oh, the discoveries we make on the internet. Today I really learned something about my ancestors.

This one was an immaculate conception. Look at the death date of the father.
Either that or it was VERY LONG pregnancy. Or perhaps some kind of in vitro thing. Any way you cut it, I feel really special.
Note: I stripped identifying parts of this entry, but the dates are as originally displayed. Don't most software packages flag entries when children are born 6 years after the father died? For the record, the year of death for the father is off by at least 40 years. He was reproducing well into the 1880s. Outlived 3 wives, but that is another story.
