To those of you interested in the line that includes James C.
LeForge of Vigo Co., In, son of Ephriam LeForge and Cynthia Ann Pound:
I have been researching James' birth year in preparation for
ordering a stone for his grave in Terre Haute. I've come to the
conclusion that it is 1864 and not the 1863 as is commonly reported. I
believe the earlier date is from the book, The Pound and Kester Families.
I could not find any records to support that date but did find much to
support 1864. That would be his death certificate, available census
records and five of his children's birth certificates. (Vigo Co. Health
Dept. only has five of his children's births recorded.) With the
exception of one census and one birth certificate which both support a
birth year of 1865, the records support 1864 as his birth.
If anyone has anything to contradict my conclusion, I would like
to hear from you. I want to be accurate in marking his grave.
Thanks. Kathleen Dewey
I have been researching the correct birth year for James C.
LeForge of Vigo Co. IN, son of Ephraim Washington LeForge and Cynthia Ann
Pound. I have reached the conclusion that it is 1864 and not 1863. This
is based on available census records, his death certificate and five
birth certificates of his children. Only five could be found by the Vigo
Co. Health Dept.
I think the 1863 date is from the book, The Pound and Kester
Families. But I can't find any records to support that. If anybody
has other information, I'd like to know. I'm planning to mark his grave
and want to be accurate.
