According to the 'John White Family Bible,' the year of his birth on his headstone is incorrect. The headstone gives '1861.' The Bible gives '1851,' and all of his siblings were born between 1835-1853.

From: John White McDowell Family Bible:
"John A. McDowell died July 20th, 1878, aged 26 years, 8 mos and 11 days."
