William 'Henry' Corfield
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 15, 1833, Germany
Death: Feb. 6, 1917
Adams County
Illinois, USA

Oct 15, 1833 birth date is from transcription (not performed by contributor). William 'Henry' Corfield's death certificate gives birth date of Feb. 2, 1834.

As all, long time, researchers know. Grave markers contain errors and death certificates are only as accurate as the knowledge of the informant.

I will add the comment that on the 1900 census Mr. Corfield himself reported his birth month as October. Therefore shedding doubt on the accuracy of his death certificate.

Note: There is one daughter, Amanda Eleanor "Ella" Corfield, that is still missing from the links. She married John W. McQuire in Brown County, IL on Aug. 7, 1895. I can find no further record for the couple.
