Please add a note to the bio to explain that the date on the headstone appears to be in error. The death certificate says Feb 14, 1868 but death certificates are not infallible. However, the 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930, and 1940 censuses all indicate either 1868 or 1869 so I am inclined to believe the death certificate.
Thanks,
Donald J. Ward

Additional note from Donald J. Ward:
"I know that the mother's name does not match the death certificate, which says his mother was Julia Hartsfield. However, my information is that Henry was born 14 Feb 1868 and the date of A. W. Murphy's marriage to Julia Hartsfield was not until 20 Dec 1869."
