Notes for En Kyau LYAU
-Information from tombstone520

-Service: Christian Church on Kewalo St.572
Notes for En Oi (Spouse 1)
-Conflict: Source has him born December 1877168, & headstone says via Chinese character, he was born in Dec., but English says Feb.520 526 (I'm going with Feb., based on the explanation below by Lannie), (Other sources have him born in Feb. Need to Confirm).478 Source has him born January 14, 1876.561

needless to say, it all depends on when and where the translation was done.  If it was in the states and they are translating from a document from English to Chinese, then I would lean towards the English version of the birthday being in February 18th of 1874.  Instead of writing 二 they wrote 十二.

If it was a translation of a Chinese document to English, then the birthdate could be the Chinese version on the stone of December 18 of 1874.   Translating/misreading the twelve (十二) as two (二).

Please note that February would be 二月 and December would be 十二月, just an extra character "十"  Easily mistaken either way”.579
