His birthdate is given on his gravestone as 1838, but his age on various censuses varies greatly. In 1840, he was apparently 5-9; in 1855, 19; in 1870, 31; in 1875, 36; in 1880, 41; in 1900, 61 (and b. Jul 1838). The last four reports are consistent with his stone, but conflict with the earliest one, which would seem to be more accurate.
