I am extremely grateful for this information, I believe you have the correct person I have been looking for.
The birth date is skewed on every piece of information I have found on him. I have found census from 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, and 1920. Each and everyone of them give a different "about" birth date ranging from 1832 through 1844. It's funny because you are looking at the same siblings and parents in each progressive census. I know he was old when he died, because the family has passed down stories of him living to be almost 100 so I believe you have provided me with the information I need to complete the picture.
Thank you very much for this information and the time you have taken to do this research. I am sure this will give me the opportunity to find the answers to his civil war information and regimental history. It has been long searched for!
I will contact the Mississippi Department of Archives for a copy of his information.
