    Gender  Male 
    Alt. Birth  27 Feb 1856 
    • This date came from his tombstone entry on the Rootsweb site. However, his age, as reported in census data for every year except 1880, supports the birth year of 1852. His wife's stone also shows 1856 even though her census data also supports a birth year of 1852. From the pictures on the web site, the stones are readable and are transcribed correctly.
