Date of birth for George Darling Watt is most likely 16 Jan 1816 at Manchester, because that was the date he himself provided to the registrar at the Nauvoo Temple when he received his endowment there on 22 Dec 1845. The grave markers may be in error as they were placed by descendants from secondary knowledge. While it cannot be denied there was also a George D Watt born in Manchester in 1812 and christened soon after in St George Parish, there is inadequate data to make a positive identity match. Indeed, the one George could be an elder brother and deceased in infancy of the person of the same name who came to Utah. My years of genealogical experience suggest to me the 1816 date is trustworthy. Genehisthome (talk) 08:36, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
