In my humble opinion, his death date could say Jun 4 rather than Jan 4. I say that because he was listed on the census with Alice and James B. on Jan 20-21 that year. (Good to see that you're still at it BJ.)

Thanks for the correction. I looked for his death certificate but did not find one in Kentucky.
