date of birth[edit]

His date of birth differs from the one at Find-A-Grave. Lincher 14:08, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

I have changed the birth date to 1739. Findagrave says 1739, the Kentucky Encyclopedia says 1739 (probably April), and the Kentucky Department of Libraries says April 1739. Lamont A Cranston 18:02, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

I'm translating this article to Chinese, now got this:

  • "As tensions between the U.S. and Great Britain escalated in the wake of the June 22, 1806, Chesapeake–Leopard Affair,"

Is this a typo as Chesapeake–Leopard Affair occurred at June 22, 1807?--Jarodalien (talk) 06:48, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

@Jarodalien: Just double-checked the source, and it is indeed a typo. Thanks for the catch. I changed it. Acdixon (talk · contribs) 15:15, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the follow up. BTW, translation done about an hour ago, personally I feel this one is a little bit rely on one source, but still a fine article.--Jarodalien (talk) 16:26, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
