You have discovered the same conflicts that I did. I thought I was doing something wrong or had the wrong person. What a small world.
I have that page from SJ County. Plus I did some research at the public lib. and found city directories back to 1870. What a find that was. I scanned all the paper copies so I can send you just about anything. Regarding Illnois this came from the civil war service record. And a funny thing the battle records said his company walked over 3200 miles. Now that would make him in the 60's so confusing it gets. Thanks for resoponding.
