Death Certificate Elijah DeBusk
This has his birth date as Jan 25, 1856 which is not correct. The correct date is Jan 25, 1847. The second line said he was 77 years, 6 months, and 15 days old. That would make his birth 1847. This information was given by Elijah's son Samuel Dickson DeBusk. It was probably a typo by the clerk filling out the Death Certificate. It also states that his mother was Martha Edison. Her correct name was Martha Edmondson.
