John claims not to know where his brother Ben is buried, yet Ben's headstone was clearly visible in the family graveyard in The Heritage (2x18). John also says Ben was his elder brother, yet the headstone gave Ben's date of birth as 1898. According to The Prophecy (4x04) John left school aged sixteen in 1911, which would make him the elder brother by three or four years.
In the truckloading scene, John-boy claims he was four years old when his father returned from the war, and that this was the first time he had seen him.

One of the headstones on the mountain is for a Floyd Walton, who is named as the son of Henry and Martha Corinne. The inscription gives his year of birth as 1898, making him 28 years younger than his nearest brother, and making Martha Corinne 51 years old when he was born. None of the characters ever mentions Floyd, not even his own mother, and this headstone is the only evidence for him in the whole series.

First one is after corabeth returns to the bank and they cut to mamie and Emily if you look close the little girl getting dunked looks likes she's already been in the water the whole front of her is soaked though hair's not.
