Source Notes

McEvers from a biography; spec. time. Same date in Current Biography 1943 and in 50,000 Birthdays. Penfield Collection gives January 9,1914, says "date verified" time of 4:35 AM computed from Sabian Symbols #559. Same date in F.P. Info Please and CB Obit. 1970. A&E Network website gives January 9.

Sabian Symbols #449 gives Jan. 10, 1910 same date in Celebrity Birthdays. Shelley Ackerman notes that the New York Times obituary of Lee's younger sister, June Havoc, said: "Ellen Evangeline Hovick was born on Nov. 8, 1912, in Vancouver, British Columbia. Or so Ms. Havoc concluded. Her mother reportedly carried five birth certificates for her younger daughter, to satisfy the child labor laws of every state, so June wasn’t sure exactly how old she was.: It makes some sense that Lee was more likely born in 1910 than in 1914.

Wikipedia gives 9 January 1911, based on California death records. The website History link has 8 January 1911.
