      Says the date of his birth was 10 June 1813, but maybe the clerk heard wrong because that would be after his christening date. Also, Thomas died BEFORE his wife Elizabeth came to Utah so she must have given his information to the clerk, after he was deceased! She also listed his parents as James and Margaret Archibald, when his mother's name was really Agnes.
