Got a great update from a fellow Pilk researcher:

"Concerning the birth date of Wesley Pilkenton ------Do you have a copy of his death certificate? If so, you will notice that there are two different dates, one is a birth date and the other is his age at the time of death. He died November 29, 1912, and his age on that date was 93 years and 5 months.
If you do the math you will see that his birthday would then be May 29, 1819. Murphy was born December 1817, that makes their birthdays 15 months apart."

Excellent! Thank you!
