Shebal - Moscrip family

Classification: Query
Surnames: Shebal; Moscrip
Looking to fill in a few blanks on the family tree and ran into this little problem . . . Now I know that sometimes children were named for a deceased sibling but this makes no sense to me. How can she be on the 1900 census with the same birth date (6 Aug 1893) but with a death date of 1896 on her gravestone?
The only thing I can think of is there were twin girls born and the living girl was given the name of the deceased one? But there is no twins anywhere in the family lines!
Can't seem to locate any other Shebal's born on that date or a South Dakota death index that lists her.
