(Birth year and age of Mahala was nearly impossible to read; is recorded as indexed at ancestry.com even though this is not logical. The birth year for Jacob is also in error; he was not yet born according to the 1880 census and his death record has his date of birth as 14 Jan 1884. Therefore, all these birth dates are suspect.)
As David's brother Jacob was born Jan 1884, the above July 1884 date for David cannot be correct and it is assumed that David was born sometime in 1885.
