The census birth years and months tend to be off about a year,because they usally didnt ask for the birth date only the age of the person and the census takers would deduct that from the present year and month to determine the month and year of birth,also the census takers never considered months in a persons age because they never ask,say a person is 23 years and 3 months and 12 days old and you try to figure their age by the age 23 and the present month only,then you are gonna be off a year and maybe some months,it looks like the one at st.nicholas ave.because people usally dealt with the local merchants.
