  • Walter Silas Burrell was enumerated under his second name in the 1900 census, at age 8.  His birth date was reported as June 1891, but the census date for 1900 was 1 June.  So this matches.  But in his 1918 draft registration, Silas reported his birth date as 19 June 1890.  If this was correct, he should have been 9 years old on 1 June 1900.  His grave has the year as 1892.
