However, other records give his birth date as 7 Dec 1815 and his ages as given in the Sardinian ship list in 1876, the 1891 Federal Census, and on his death certificate support a 7 Dec 1815 birth date. He appears to be the "Herman", age 1, listed in his father's family in the Oct 1816 Census. His death certificate in the Manitoba vital records states that he died 23 Feb 1895.
