  • William's grave (as reported on his Find-a-Grave memorial) has hisbirth date as 13 September 1865.  The 1900 census has September 1865.One or more genealogies reports the year as 1863.  The deathcertificate informant seems confused or guessing, reporting November1865.  Edmonds researcher Shirley believes the date of 1865 is wrong,since it is later than would be indicated by his age in censuses.  Asreported in the 1870 and 1880 censuses, his age is 6 and 16, whichwould match more closely the sate in September 1863.

    Birth Date Doesn't Match DC, TVA or any census.
    I think the birth date of Sept 1865 belongs to someone else. His deathcertificate says Nov 1865 but that's probably the most unreliablesource we have. Birth dates on DCs are not primary evidence. Nextleast reliable we have the TVA grave reinterment records that lists1860 as his birth. Next we have the 1900 census that says Dec 1863.Considering that all his censuses since 1870 have his age ending in a6 or 7 I don't think 1865 is the correct birth year.

    He's William M on the 1900 and 1910 censuses with wife Mary IVY andkids. He's W. Maston on TVA records. His DC is under Maston and hasMary Ivy erroneously listed as his mother.
