The 1880 U.S. Federal census has Eliza two years older than Mary, so the 1870 date must be correct: The 1871 census of Canada indicates that her birth was Dec 1870, and her gravestone shows she was born in 1870.
7. John Francis EGAN
Born 3 sep 1873 Low, Quebec, Canada, died 29 Jul 1950 Stearns County, Minnesota, 76 years
The birth year given on John's WWI draft registration card is 1875.
The 1930 census identifies the three children listed as a nephew and nieces. The 1910 and 1920 censuses say son and daughters. The 1925 North Dakota state census (and maybe others) show Olive's parents and family living very close to them.
8. Julia Catherine EGAN
Born 19 sep 1875 Wakefield Twsp, Quebec, Can
Julia Egan, age 29 [born 1881], born in Canada, is a "lodger" in the 1910 census with her older sister Mary Eleanor Batterberry in Sisseton, South Dakota. We have her correct birth year as 1875. She is in the 1900 census with her family in Bangor Township, Pope county.
George Kurkowski has her married to a BATTERBERRY, but no other information.
