All her life she believed to be born Feb 29th, a leap year. In 2009 it was discovered that 1886 was not a leap year, 1884 was.
In Jan 2016 her birth record was discovered under the last name Heisel. Her birth name was Mary, named after her grandmother Mary Walker and her birth date actually March 2, 1886, the same day her mother died.
Why the name change to Rose and why the fake Feb 29th birth date is unknown and remains speculatory.
