    The memorial states "Gravestone has born 1859, but on 1900 census inFalls Co. he said he was born Dec 1862."  But we shoudl note that theyear of birth did not usually come from the enumerated themselves, butwas usually worked out in an often erroneous fashion by the enumeratorfrom the age.

    There again we find census ages notoriously varied and oftenunreliable in censuses.  We also find that engraved dates ongravestones, often from incorrectly remembered or recorded familysources, are often also wrong.  It is not uncommen to even find thedate of death in error.  We note these in this genealogy when we findthem.
