In each of these records his age is recorded differently. I think census enumerators were people that maybe quessed ages at times. The Draft card says his birth was 23 Sep 1891 and his death certificate says 02 Sep 1887. I used the 02 Sep 1887 for application with SAR not realizing until now that there were two different dates of birth. Of course this is a 4 year diffeence.
I have a copy of his death certificate which gives a lot of vital information.
