1900 Census says he was born in June 1826. Each census seems to have a different birth year for him. Because the 1900 Census recorded the month and year, it is more likely that he answered the question for himself than that someone else did for him.

no grave marker in cemetery.

|Burial||Bullington Graveyard, Cocke County, Tennessee, USA
She was present in the 1880 Census but her husband was a widower in the 1900 Census. Because the 1890 Census is not extant and Cocke County, Tennessee did not start keeping death records until after 1900 and because she has no headstone in the cemetery in which she is buried, we can only speculate that she died during this 20 year span of time.

Some websites, like familysearch.org, list his birthdate as being 1872. Other researchers have picked up on this. But the birth date comes from two places - his death certificate and his headstone. Also, this was the year of birth given in census records.

|Marriage||Jul. 20, 1899||Cocke County, Tennessee|
|Death||Jan. 25, 1962||Clyde, Haywood, North Carolina, USA
His obituary says that he died at age 89, meaning he was born in 1872 but that does not fit with the 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 census records.
|Burial||Jan. 27, 1962||Woody Cemetery, Madison, North Carolina, USA|
