Gabriel Ross Perot was born on 2 Aug 1899 at New Boston, Texas.[1]or on 11 Aug 1900.[2] When he registered for the World War 1 Draft on 12 Sept 1918 at Texarkana, Bowie, Texas, Gabriel Ross Perot said he was 19 years old. He lived in New Boston, Texas, and worked as a cotton buyer for the Southern Prod. Co. in New Boston, Texas. His nearest relative was Maggie H. Perot of 922 Garland, Texarkana.[2]

NOTE: As Gabriel was not included on the 1900 US Census, and his mother had only had two children, both of whom are shown on the census,[3] Gabriel was probably born in 1900, not 1899. Watt-266 20:54, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
