*Age conflict between 1930 US Census report and age stated on Guy's headstone, as transcribed from Cooper Cemetary (Black) in Tangipahoa Parish,LA. (Cemetary transcriptions can be found on, Tangipahoa Parish LA Website. Tombstone gives 1888-1937. However, census states that he was born in 1877. Will check cemetary record. I may have recorded it incorrectly.
