Incredible Pony Bob find -

He himself did not know for certain and only could guess he was born in 1840 - which is what shows on all headstone, death certificate, etc. I also located his family members and their information as well. Imagine the feeling when I saw that on my screen and realized what I'd found.

Christopher Corbett, the author of "Orphans Preferred", is calling me at home tonight to talk about all of this.

But the truth has come to light, there is no doubt about the accuracy, and I am proud to be able to give Pony Bob his birthday back.
