A lot of sources have different information on him. His age varies, however Quaker records confirm his 1825 birthdate. He was listed as having been born in Wales, Ohio, or Canada (Ohio being most common) and was married atleast twice, possibly 3 times. No sources confirm his death date however I did not find him on the USA or Canada 1911 National Censuses. Can somebody help me find when he died?
