  • Name Jesse S. LANKFORD 
    Born 6 Dec 1853  , Polk, Tennessee Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 3
    • Birth date is reported as 06 Dec 1883 in death record index; I think the year is mis-indexed, because the age is also reported as "6." A birth year of 1853 would yield an age of 62 - it appears a second digit was dropped off. 1853 also fits better with the birth years of his siblings, who were born between 1856 and 1868.
