Andrew Jackson DeHaven
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 10, 1842
McDonough County
Illinois, USA
Death: Oct. 16, 1859
McDonough County
Illinois, USA

From a previous reading of his tombstone, the inscription includes:

Andrew Jackson DeHaven
Dec 10, 1842 - Oct. 16, 1859

This agrees with the mortality schedule prepared along with the 1860 census for Hire Township, McDonough County, which includes an entry to this effect:

Jackson Dehaven, 16, male, born Illinois, died in October, typhoid fever, ill for 4 weeks

However, Jackson was listed with his parents in the Federal Census of 1860 (base date June 1), in Hire Township, McDonough County.

This is one of multiple similar conflicts: individuals were listed on the mortality schedule as having died prior to June 1, 1860, their tombstone inscriptions indicate they died prior to June 1, 1860, but they were also listed on the census pages. It appears that the enumerator for Hire Township did not understand that people who had died in the calendar year preceding the census (June 1, 1859, through May 31, 1860) should not have been included on the regular census pages.
