Citation Notes: 
This 1859 passenger card identifies him as "His Exc." who put down his age as 42, so we can assume he was born in 1817. Edit: A birth certificate that identifies his father as a clerk and the correct birth location gives a complete birthdate that would still correspond to this passenger card.
