Eleanor (or Elinor Barr) - Conflicts of birth dates and name spelling on federal records

Two death certificates :

  1. Eleanor Barr ; June 16 1896 to Sep 1979 ( https://www.findmypast.com/transcript?id=US/TRIB/005839593 ) - Nyack, NY
  2. Elinor Barr : 10 Jun 1894 to 23 Mar 1990 ( https://www.findmypast.com/transcript?id=US/TRIB/009865910 ) - New York City

Marriage certificate of "Elinor Sachs"( See transcript : [HL001T][GDrive] )

  • Elinor is age 26 on a 17 Feb 1922 wedding to David S Barr.. and born in 1895 (some forums suggest 1896, but we know with certainty her brother Joseph was born in 1896)
  • A June 16 1895 birthday would make her () on a January 1910 census

So the "Elinor Sachs" on the wedding certificate that marries David Barr on Feb 17 1922 ... is birthday-matched with the death certificate for "Eleanor Barr" ( June 16 1896 to Sep 1979 )

Also note : from the Alexander Sachs notes from FDR Library (at Marist College )
