91 years ago today my father was born in Newellton, Louisiana. But if you use this date to try to verify who he was and his birth, you may be in for some difficulty.
Daddy always joked that he had two birthdays. (He was a dessert lover, so maybe he was after two of Mom's birthday cakes!) And recently when I was using free Ancestry searches, I found my dad's info by using that birth day date that he always said was his second birthday, June 27, 1923.
So that got me to thinking (oh, I am sounding more Southern the older I get!!!) what birthdate is written on his birth certificate, passport, driver's license, military records, etc.?
For all of my family members who are as curious as I am, I'll have to ask Memaw if she still has those documents and will let me check them out.
In the meantime, we will remember today, June 23 as Dad's birthday and light a candle for him on our memory table. (I personally like it better today, since I was his early birthday present on June 22 back in 1948.)
