What Does This Provide Evidence Of?
Does this document state that Thomas was "of" Coshocton County, Ohio, in 1817? Keep in mind that this record was dated in 1829.
It also turns out that Thomas was not even alive on 30 June 1829 when the final payment was made.
It is important to remember what a document provides evidence of and what it does not.
And it is always important to utilize more than one source.
