Birth:  17 Oct 1819, Pittsford, Ontario [now Monroe] Co., NY
Death:  24 Mar 1881, Piqua, Miami Co., OH

William's wife in the 1840 census was born 1810-20, so unless she was enumerated in the wrong age class, the 1823 birthyear is incorrect.  Either that or William's wife is not the daughter of Andrew & Eleanor or secondary sources are wrong about the birthdate of their daughter.

Clarinda (ARMSTRONG) FRANCIS is our subject's sister, so Phoebe may be the elder of his two missing daughters from the 1840 census.
