    • No, it's not a mistake, she was 12 yrs old when she married Richard Uniacke.

      "In 1774 he (Moses Delesdernier) was in Philadelphia, "no doubt on a trading cruise," when happening to notice a number of immigrants landing on a wharf from a West Indian vessel, he was attracted by the appearance of a young man of striking personality. He accosted the youth and found that his name was Richard John Uniacke and that he had left his home in Ireland to seek his fortune. Delesdernier invited him to return to Sackville with him and he did so. Uniacke soon fell in love with his host's daughter, and on the 3rd of May, 1775, married her, he being then twenty-one years of age and his bride less than thirteen"
