Benjamin Tombert – Born on the 4th of July

Benjamin Tombert – Born on the 4th of July

Out of curiosity, I searched the Ancestry database Indiana, Death Certificates, 1899-2011, for the earliest person in that database who was born on the 4th of July.

Benjamin Tombert was a farmer who died on 2 December 1904, at the age of 99 at 2418 Bluff Ave., Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana, USA. Benjamin was born 4 July 1805, in Kentucky, USA.

His death certificate lists his father as George Tombert, and mother’s name is illegible to me.

If Benjamin were still alive today, he would be celebrating his 211th birthday!

Happy Birthday to all of our ancestors and cousins born on the 4th of July. Benjamin Tombert is not my relative, but as does everyone whose birthday is today, he certainly had a special day to celebrate.
