    In the 1900 census, John's middle initial is C.  A WWI draft registration seem to match this in the name of John Calvin Boren, with residence in Snyder, Kiowa County, Okahoma.

    But the grave that matches him has the name J I Boren.  The birth date also differs form that on the draft registration, the draft registration saying Jany (January) 2, 1878 and the grave saying Apr 4 1878.  Ther is no John or John C or similar name iwth birth date in 1878 buiried in areas with others of his famliy.  Also the name of nearest relative (often the wife) is Mary Boren, not Sarah Boren, the wife buried with John I.
