  • Notes 
    • The dates given above are from Ezra Eby's A Biographical History of Waterloo Township (1895). A transcript of the gravestone gives April 11, 1856, as the death date, and the calculated birthdate using age information from the stone (10 months, 9 days) is June 2, 1855. Because the gravestone is badly eroded, the accuracy of the transcript cannot be checked.
