I have found varying information about Elsie's date of birth. Her obituary says she was 60 at the time of her death and that she was born
Stella, daughter, Nov 1881, age 18, actual birthday
Elizabeth, daughter, Nov 1883, age 16
Rebecca, daughter, Nov 1884, age 15, actual birthday
This is the census that has a lot of errors concerning the family. I keep trying to figure out who it was that gave the information. It may have been the grandparents of these three sisters, George and Sarah Myers, or maybe it was one the nieces or nephews that were living with the family. It would make sense that they might not necessarily know everyone’s birthdates. My theory is that if I do enough research about each person on that census and I find whoever has the correct birthday is probably the one that gave the information! It could also have been John Harve, himself. Sometimes dads don’t always remember the birthdates of their children. It is also curious that all three of the girls have November birthdays.
It is interesting to note that the surname Myers is listed on this census and that Elsie's children all list her maiden name as Myers on their marriage certificates as well as she used it on her own marriage certificate. Both Rebecca and Estella use the name Moyer on their own marriage certificate. See my post on that controversial subject of Moyer vs. Myers.
