Mary Ellen (McCarthy) Murphy Death Certificate Amendment

Mary Ellen (McCarthy) Murphy Death Amendment
Corrections to be made to
Certificate of Death of Mary E. Murphy
Who died on Nov. 20, 1937 in 77 Murray St., Newark, NJ
Facts to be corrected:
Date of Birth: from March 27, 1862 to November 27, 1862
Age: from 74 years 7 months 24 days to 74 years 11 months 24 days
Date of Amendment: Nov. 30, 1937

(This is somewhat confusing. The original certificate clearly states she was 75 years old when she died, not 74. The amendment shows this already corrected, changing only the number of months between March and November. However, the 1900 Federal Census states she was born November of 1863. Since it is most probable that the source of information on the Census was Mary Ellen herself, and the source of information on the death certificate was her daughter Helen, I have decided to use the November 27, 1863 date as the valid one. Therefore, she was, in fact, only 73 when she died.)
