      Document states birthdate to be Aug. 27, 1846 but that Thomas died at 10 yrs. of age. It is assumed this is a typographical error, the date I am inputting in the database is Aug. 27, 1836 to correct this error. But it should be considered that the typographical error could be in his given age so he could have been 1 yr., 6 mos of age and the birth date correct. Terry Latey transcriber.
