John B. Lydick1

ID#2649, b. 23 December 1859
Father: Jesse Lydick
Mother: Jane Billiter

Birth date: 23 December 1859.1 Interestingly, the ages reported for John in the 1860 and 1880 federal censuses indicate that he was born circa 1861. As an official birth record is considered to be a primary source, it normally takes precedence - so for now I'm accepting that date, 23 December 1859.2,3

Birth place: Bowman Ridge, Marshall County, Virginia.1
