Born: 22 Dec. 1815

Golombek gives birth year 1814, as do Hooper and Whyld in their 1st edition, but correct it to 1815 in their 2nd edition. Gaige gives birth date 22-12-1815. Sergeant says he was 82 when he died on 6 June 1896, but according to Gaige's birth date, he died at age 80. The Era of 20 Jul. 1862 (p.5) has 'W.
