Profile on DD Project Report due to multiple issues associated with date of birth:

Father is too old, father was dead before birth, mother is too old, WikiData - different date of birth and FindAGrave - different birth date.

It appears that the birth date was changed to the date of death, causing these errors. Due to the esteemed personage being dealt with, I think it best that a second opinion is sought.
