To determine the correct date of birth of Stephanus Bekker

My record from Fanie Bekker of Braamspruit gives two birth dates: (1) 1824/10/27 as per Dr Heese (sp?), which has been crossed out, and (2) 1824/09/26 as per the Family Bible. Could the latter be the correct date of birth and the latter, the date on which he was baptised?

Unfortunately, I have been faced with the same difference and haven't been able to resolve the conundrum. The problem is exacerbated by virtue of the fact that, on the gravestone at Braamspruit, there is an inconsistency between the birth and death dates and the stated age at death of Stephanus.

Sincerely,

Pieter Bekker
