Citation Notes: 
Although his official biography lists his birth date as 1801, the Auburn census for 1850 lists his age as "40" and his birth date as circa 1810, so he may have been born after 1801. https://search.ancestrylibrary.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=1850usfedcenancestry&indiv=try&h=11361754 Source Citation Year: 1850; Census Place: Auburn Ward 3, Cayuga, New York; Roll: M432_482; Page: 271A; Image: 129 Ancestry.com. 1850 United States Federal Census [database on-line].
