The family below appears in the 1920 Tarentum PA Census, could this be them?

The birthyear HE gave on his Social Security app was 1893, but the only accurate source would be the parish records in Slovakia.... as often people did not know their correct birthdate
Name: Adam Voytek SSN: 541-22-8524 Last Residence: 97374Scio, Linn, Oregon, United States of America Born: 24 Dec 1893 Died: 20 Feb 1988 State (Year) SSN issued: Oregon (Before 1951)
This is also listed on his Oregon Death Record.... but then death certificates and obits can be among the most inaccurate records we may find
Name: Voytek, Adam County: Linn Death Date: 20 Feb 1988 Certificate: 88-03862 Age: 94 Birth Date: 24 Dec 1893 Spouse: Mary
Just look at the age found on Mary's Death Certificate... by the reckoning of the census records her age is off by about 20 years! Name: Voytek, Mary County: Marion Death Date: 1 Oct 1970 Certificate: 15344 Age: 95 Spouse: Adam

But then his WW II Draft Registration he gave the following info
Name: Adam Voytek Birth Date: 22 Dec 1895 Birth Place: Terchova Residence: Scio, Oregon Race: White Roll: 31887_B016919
