Andrew C. Clawson
CO. G
2 REG. N.J. VOLS.
Died July 29, 1922
Aged 83 YRS 10 MOS.
28 DAYS

The above information was very hard to read and if correct would indicate that he was born on 30 August 1838 which conflicts with his death certificate.

Death Certificate says he was 83 Years, 10 Months and 14 days. This would have had him born on 14 September 1838
