Birth: May 13, 1868
Linn County
Missouri, USA
Death: Apr. 15, 1946
Linn County
Missouri, USA

His birth year is in question if one compares his grave marker to his death certificate and his obituary. His death certificate lists his birth date as 1868. The 1870 census listed him as age 2. The 1900 census stated that he was born in May 1868. As seen below, his obit stated he was born in 1869. 1868 seems to be the best guess.

He was divorced from Minnie before 1930 and did not marry again.
