Dave Gatlin, b 11 Sep 1900; d Mar 1970; last residence Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo Co, CA; SS card issued in CA.
Death record only as accurate as the knowledge of the informant, but he filled out his own application for Soc Sec card, so year of 1900 is probably correct one.
Have you looked for an obituary for this man?It might include enough information that you could tell if it was the correct David/Dave Gatlin.You never know what little tidbits will show up in obits.I'll keep my fingers crossed. (^_^)
