Message:The birth data here is clearly wrong, but I can be certain how much. His headstone confirms what census records show, which is that he was born in 1783 or 1784, NOT 1794. 17 Oct 1784 is possible, but other data suggest he was born 17 Dec 1783, which would also be consistent with census records and his headstone. FYI, I am Peter's 4th great grandson.
