A Biography With An Obvious Error

This is a part of a biography used in the next issue of Casefile Clues, which discusses an "off" 1870 census entry and clues that were not even obvious at the beginning. There's one error in the biography, but of course any transcription will not correct it in the text. Instead the [sic] should be inserted after the mistake and a comment made elsewhere.

This biography of John M. Habben comes from a county "mug book" published around 1900. We'll have a complete citation and relevant transcription in the next issue of Casefile Clues
