    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Appleseed I believe you have the birthdate wrong????? I was going to post this to my Delicious account but the info seems to be wrong.

    Today is not Johnny Appleseed’s birthday; it is September 26. It is believed that March 11 is the day he died, coinciding with planting time.

    Correction – It is the day Johnny Appleseed died (not his birthday as originally posted). Thanks to those who pointed that out.

  4. quarrryqirl77 Says:

    I believe the date of his death was February 18, 1845

    just because wikipedia says it, doesn’t make it true.
