Hmm...according to the 1930 Census, Martin and Martha were married around 1920...so it's possible that this 1920 Census is correct for him, right before he was married. Not sure what happened to his parents...

The World War I card has the wrong Birthday. The World War II card said August 7, 1891.
I would think that should be the same, no?

The 1930 Census that suanj provided for you lists Martin's place of birth as New York - And I think that the WWII card also lists NYC...

yes, the WWII list NY as birthplace, but I believe that the WWI draft registration card is your ancestor also; the sep. month can be wrong, but I believe, however that is your ancestor...

it are a age gap between the first daughter(Josephine) and the second child ( Joseph)... maybe Martha was not the first wife.. it could be possible?

If he was born in New York, he should also be in the 1900 Census and the 1905 New York Census, with his parents. His parents were Giuseppe Morales and Giuseppa La Barbera
