  • Notes  Born:
    • The 1900 census (December 1848) and his death certificate place his birth around 1848. But, the 1870 census would place his birth around 1852 since he was 18 at the time. Using standard genealogical convention to go with the earliest recorded date, I have put 1852 as an approximate birth year.
