    • Death record states birthdate as Aug 8 1876, conflicting with brother William's Nov 1876 birthdate. The 1900 Census shows his age as 21 and his birthdate as Aug 1878, so the death record is presumed to be in error. Informant for death record was Nell Greathouse, relationship not given. Headstone shows birth date only as 1877.
