    • Although the death date on his headstone is clearly July 27 1871, with age given as 82y 2m 3d, Jonathan Howell's military records reflect a death date of June 1872. Adding to the confusion, according to "Soldiers of War of 1812 Buried in Shelby County" ( http://ohshelby.ancestralsites.com/war1812.html ), he was born on June 24 1788 in Loudoun Co, Virginia, and died on July 27 1870 in Shelby Co, Ohio. This conforms to records showing that his will was written and probated on 18 Oct 1870.
