      This discussion of multiple dates of birth reminds me of a blues
      singer, named Alex Miller, who recorded as Sonny Boy Williamson
      II. He gave about 7 different dates of birth, from 1896 to 1909.
      He also claimed his real name was Sonny Boy Williamson! Leadbelly
      was another one for contradictory stories, as was Big Bill
      Broonzy. Anyone who researches this stuff has to separate the
      wheat from the chaff, as it were. Bob
