In Response To: Re: MOSS, Ruth Helen Sims ()
Thanks for your reply to Judy on how to obtain the Death Certificate for Betty(Hunter)Sims. The information at the URL you provided shows exactly what I was trying to say about age variations on "offical" records.
The 1880 Census has Betty Hunter listed as a 20 y/o. The age on Census records is "age on last birthday", yet the Death Certificate information at the URL above shows her birth year as 1881.
I know this is a small number in terms of years (2), but her birth year from these records would indicate somewhere between 1879 & 1881.
Thanks for your example.
