Re: William W. Old born PA 1853-63

In Reply to: William W. Old born PA 1853-63 by Joyce Patch of 165

California death certificate shows William W. Old (wife Minta) dies on 31 Aug 1916 at age 63. That puts his birth at 1853 before August 31 or 1852 after August 31. The 1910 census of Alameda Co., CA gives William Old as 56, which puts his birthday in 1853 after June or 1854 before June. Therefore he was born between June 15 and August 30 of 1853. In 1850 census Allegheny City, Allegheny Co., PA is the following family group:
James Old, Sr. 67 B. in England, literate PLUMBER
James Old 33 B. in England, literate
James Old, Jr. 3 B. in England, literate (??)
Anna Old 4 B. in England, literate (??)
Jane Lee 64 B. in Scotland, literate
Elzbth. Huston 16 B. in England, literate
Notice that there is no wife present, she must have died on trip from England! He must have remarried and Elizabeth is a baby sitter. Plumbers work with metal, no plastic then.
