Ancestry seems to think he was born in 1880.  Can you check what you have for him.
The trees there also give parents names.
Stay in the  Moment

Grainger - Wigton and Newcastle Area
Gibson - Newcastle/Scotland (Roxburgh) Areas
Crisell/Crissell/Chrysel/etc. - Suffolk Area
Schoch - Germany (Íhringen Area)

He sure did!  This is all correct. 

His birthday was March 10, 1880. 

Are you getting all of this on acestry.com?  I'm using familysearch and having a difficult time.
