There are two lines of thought about when George was born. His children say he was actually born on 02 February 1902 despite the fact that all his records show he was born 02 February 1900. The story goes this way. He ran away from home at age 15, lied about his age, and joined the Navy. His Father got him out of the Navy but he then ran away again and joined the Army. His birth certificate was issued on 03 October 1961 and says he was born 02 February 1900. The documents he used at that time to prove his age were his military record dated May 28, 1918 and his marriage record dated March 2, 1921. His gravestone says 1900.
