    The WWII registration says his birthday was in August 1889.  But inthe 1900 census he was already 13 years old, and in 1910 his age wasreported as 22.  The year of 1887 seems the right one.

    Charles' death certificate has the name Charled Leonard Hendron.  Allthe details match the person we know as Charles Newton in so manyother other records.  His wife was the informant, so it seems unlikelyshe would have been mistaken on his middle name.  It may be thatCharles changed his name, or perhaps had four names instead of three,but I doubt this.  But the certificate is typed.  So the typistreducing the doctor's original handwriting may have misread thehandwriting or absently typed the wrong middle name.
