    These censuses have his birth about 1856-7.  This is commonly reportedby genealogies.  I found one fairly detailed genealogy, however, thathas a birth date in 1853 for Thomas.  The 1920 census record thatappears to be for him has his age as 68, which would put birth about1852.  The following genealogy record reports him correctly as the sonof George Washington Boren and Rachel Davis.  Matilda's age in the1920 census matches the genealogy birth date of 1861.
