Joseph Leslie Bearden - the date on the death certificate given by A C Bearden shows the 25th March 1889. Info on a death certificate is secondary and is not always correct - just what they thought.

If you will look at his WWI registration in 1917 Joseph listed March 23. Then when he registered for WWII he listed March 23.

I did a history book on the Wesley Chapel Cemetery, Bluff Dale, Erath Co and found the above scenario many - so I would list what was on the tombstone and then list the actual date with reference.

Can you put an asterisk by the date on the info from death certificate and then give the correct date as shown on his WWI and WWII registration with documentation?
