David Roy Welch
« on: Thursday 20 July 17 20:58 BST (UK) »
David was born in Bottineau North Dakota to parents John H Welch and Ann Elizabeth Reynolds. In 1900 census Bottineau he is shown as being born Nov 1889. His 1917 draft card shows him living in Miami Co, Kansas with a birth 17 Nov 1889 Bottineau. The 1942 draft card shows him living in Seattle with a birth date of 17 Nov 1888. There is a death record of 18 Sep 1945 Seattle for David Welch with wife Beatrice. The previous info is from familysearch.
I would like to find out if the death in Seattle is my guy and if so who is the wife.

Thanks claire. Something to investigate.
The age at death for the Seattle death record is 56 yrs10 mths and 1 day. I make that as a date of birth 17 Nov 1889. Maybe someone could check the math?

Math is not my strong point if we are being exact, but tried it here

Using the death date as todays date, and then added his date of birth

It is not uncommon for the draft cards to vary one year on dates of birth.  All the entries you refer to are for David Roy Welch.
Another variable date - U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 shows SSN Claim(1937) for David Roy Welch - 7 November 1888 Bottineau Bo, North Dakota - parents - John J Welch - Mother:   Elisabeth Reyolds.

The 1937 date was when he first applied for his Social Security number. 

Regarding the Seattle death, you may need to order the death certificate to get the information.
