MY QUESTION:
We just found out about this marriage… is it my Grandfather Frank Palmer Coleman with a ten year different for his birth year?

THE FACTS:
SEPT 12, 1918 on his US World War I draft registration card 1917-1918 in Fallon, Churchill County, Nevada… HE wrote age in years 42, birth date May 5, 1876, next of kin; W H Coleman; Greeley Well Col (I think it should be Greeley, Weld Co., Colorado) that is where W H Coleman lived.
According to 1940 Census in Fairfield Idaho Frank Palmer Coleman lived in Rural, Lincoln, Nevada in 1935.

My Grandfather Frank Palmer Coleman was born May 5, 1877 in Marshall Town, Iowa. He died on Jun 27, 1957 in Hailey, Blaine Co., Idaho.

Frank Palmer Coleman married Mary Cheeney on February 19, 1900 in Greeley, Weld Co., Colorado.

My Grandmother Mary (Cheeney) Coleman born on Aug 13, 1878 in Minnesota, she died on Mar 8, 1918 Fallon, Churchill County, Nevada.

From census 1910 with incorrect spelling of last name.
