Aged: 59 years
**************************************************
Paul's grave marker shows his DOB as 16 Dec 1878.

Other records show that his DOB is 16 Dec 1876. These records include Paul's Death Certificate, his World War I Draft Registration Card, and a family tree maintained by his nephew (specifically Paul's wife's nephew). In addition, Paul's ages as shown in his Missouri Marriage License and the 1910, 1920, and 1930 US Census entries would be consistent with his DOB being in 1876 and not 1878.

Therefore, I assume the date on the grave marker is an error.
