Happy birthday (maybe) Great Uncle Andy

Andrew Wickliffe (1882 - 1974) was my great grand uncle.  
A short tree review

ME!
  daughter of Linda Sue Brown 


Uncle Andy lived a long life, in fact, he out lived all 3 of his wives.

I started organizing his records & came across today as the date he gave to the US draft administrator as his birth date when he register for the World War I draft in 1918.  Several records, including the Social Security index conflict with this month & day.

Uncle Andy could not read or write, but held a number of jobs-coal miner, attendant, shingle maker, truck driver, laborer at a tobacco company & a porter at a bakery.
