Notes for John W. McClurg
His death certificate records John W. McClurg, age 71, born 24 June 1860 in Rowan Co., Ky, died 12 Jan 1941 in Morehead, Rowan Co., Ky, married, husband of Sallie McClurg, age 36, father Marion McClurg, born in Rowan Co., Ky, mother’s maiden name Miney Corbin, born in Ky, cause of death chronic heart leosion (?) mytral anemia secondary due to infested sebacious cyst on left side of face, informant blank, burial in McClurg Cemetery.
Note that a birthdate in 1860 would imply an age at death of 81, not 71. The census records (as well as the age of his mother) are consistent with a birthdate in 1870. Apparently someone incorrectly subtracted his (correct) age of 71 from the date of death.
