Exhaustive Searches and Revised Conclusions
This list is dated late July of 1863. One would think Paul would be alive on the date of the list, but he's not. His probate papers clearly indicate he died in June of 1863.
Conclusions always need to be revised in light of additional evidence, and as we are sometimes told, one document is not proof of anything.
Just a few reminders that never hurt.
The next issue of Casefile Clues has little to do with this draft registration, but there is one clue on here that was used in combination with information from Paul's personal estate inventory. And it had nothing to do with his date of death.
