This is only six and a half months apart.......as the birth ages are here.....
Any ideas? Interesting for sure....
It was a mistake on whomever had the tombstone of George W. carved up. George W. was my great x 2 grandpa and it very well could have been his fault as on various census records his age seems to jump. He was born in August of 1839, not 1840 as per the 1900 Madison County, AR census:
1900 Madison County, Arkansas -- California Township
#188 George W. Vaughan 60 m Aug 1839 head m 43 AR TN TN
Mary 58 f Jan 1842 wife m 43 8-7 AR TN TN
Martha C. 36 f Aug 1863 dau s MO TN TN
Minnie R. 19 f Jan 1881 dau s AR TN TN
