Calendar Correction

It has always been reported that early rocker Eddie Cochran was from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and Eddie himself always said in interviews that he was from Oklahoma.  But new research now indicates that this is not true.  In order to find work during the Great Depression, the Cochran family moved to Albert Lea, Minnesota in 1930 or shortly afterwards.  Both their fourth child, Patty, and fifth child, Eddie, were born there, with the Cochrans living at 909 Marshall.  The family did visit Oklahoma often, staying with Eddie's grandmother, and they later moved briefly back to Oklahoma City.

Here we have an error that even the person involved (Eddie) either didn't know where he was born or misstated it to reporters.
