Notes for William M. Barbee
His death certificate records William M. Barbee, age 81 years 11 months, birthdate blank, born in Ky, farmer, died 13 Jan 1940 in Maysville, Mason Co., Ky, usual residence Cowan Station, Fleming Co., Ky, widower of late wife Hannah Preston Barbee, father Louis Barbee, mother’s maiden name Elizabeth Hendricks, both born in Ky, cause of death cerebral hemorrhage, informant Mrs. Rose Barbee, Maysville Rural Rt. 1, burial in Elizaville, Ky.
I cannot find William in the 1870 census, when he would have been 12 or 13.

The age for William is off by 3 or 4 years, and the age for Hannah is off by 7 to 9 years (she was listed as 9 in 1870.) If it weren’t for William’s death certificate giving the names of his parents and wife, I might even have thought this was a different William Barbee.
William’s mother Elizabeth is the next household.
