Biographical data
Name: Marache, Napoleon  
   Also known as: N.O.K.; 'Smith'
Born: 15 June 1815
Died: 11 May 1875
 
Notes:
Fiske and Lange say born 1818. Sarah's Morphy website says born 1815. Gaige gives birth date 06-1815. Hilbert gives birth date 15-06-1815, as does van Winsen, but the latter says the Dubuque Chess Journal gave 8-06-1818, so perhaps that was the source of the false date.
