I keep seeing trees that include a Jacob Fry who died in Williamson County, Illinois, on the the 12th of March 1883.
He is usually shown as the son of Henry Fry & Mary "Polly" Smith and/or married to Emily Turney.
But the son Jacob of Henry Fry & Mary "Polly" Smith was dead before his father's estate was probated in Smith County, TN, in 1873.
And the Jacob who married Emily Turney died on January 27th in 1881.
Does anyone have any more details about where the death date of March 12, 1883 came from? Is there a gravestone or death certificate somewhere?
