Re: Coincidence? #general

The grave locator on Mount Hebron's website (https://www.mounthebroncemetery.com/#search) lists only one Samuel Rosansky. He died on 22 Sep 1943 and is buried in a Workmen's Circle Section. According to the cemetery's records, he was 50 when he died.

No doubt Sam R. #1 and #2 are one and the same person and that like so many immigrants, he was inconsistent in reporting his date of birth. Or in the case of a death certificate, a relative reported a different date. If you want more reassurance, see the home address on Samuel's WWII draft card (with the 15 May 1892 birth date) and on his death record (with the 3 Sept. 1893 birth date); on both, the address is 584 Logan Street, Brooklyn.

died September 22, 1943 buried in Mt. Hebron cemetery

The date of birth for #1 was on his marriage certificate, his child's
birth certificate and his death certificate.

The date of birth for #2 was on his WW I draft card, his
naturalization certificate and his passport application.
Could this be the same man? If it is the same man, which date is
more likely for his date of birth?
