    C M Boren
    Age 80 years, born Murray [County, Tennessee]
    Confederate States, surrendered at Battle of Selma, Alabama, with hiscompany
    Served 1861-1865, Company H, 2nd Mississippi Regular Cavalry, ForestsDivision, Jackson's Corps, Armstrong's Brigade
    Resided in Texas since 1892
    P O Windom, Route 1
    15 October 1913, Filed Mar 19, 1914
    Pension allowed from 1 Mar 1914

    Note that the age reported here in 1914 is 80 years, which would makehis birth about 1834.  This birth date and repsective age is whatbegan appearing late in Charles' life.  the 1900 censusw reports hisbirth date as May 1834.  Early census afes, however, place his birthabout 1840.  In 1850 he si reported to be 10 yeares old.  If he hadbeen borni n 1934, he would have been 16 years old.  It is hard tobelieve his parents could have confused a 10-year-old with a17-year-old!  Charles' memory, or someone's record keeping, shifted toan earlier date and older age later in his life.

    The genealogy above reports a different date and place of death fromthe Texas Death Index.  The date of death in the official record is 3days earlier, in Hunt County, the county south of Fannin County.  Isuspect that the place of residence was Fannin County, and the date of19 April is perhaps the date of burial rather than the date of death.Charlie may have died in a hospital in Greenville, in Hunt County.

    The location of Bartley Woods is not reported as one of the towns orcities, or as an unincorporated location in Fannin County.  Iconfirmed that this is the name of a cemetery, not a town.  This makesit more likely that the date reported above as the death date is theburial date.  He and his wife Elizabeth are both buried inBartley-Woods Cemetery, also called Providence Cemetery.  Thiscemetery is just south of Windom, Texas.  This town is also reportedas Charlie's P O address in his 1914 application for a Confederateveteran's pension.
