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.
