This looks like the record from which the DAR info was abstracted. The original source for this image is explained here. Looks like I need to see if they have the original license at the courthouse. Even better, maybe my second cousin has a copy of the original and not what I found on-line. I'm hopeful that the original has birthplaces, ages, parents' names. That'd make things so much easier.
