Orin Backus's Family

Orin Backus, son of Charles and Eunice.....

According to the 1855 census (Monroe County), Orin Backus was born in Livingston County, New York:

New York, State Census, 1855
Ward 7, Rochester City, Monroe, New York
Household Gender Age Birthplace
Head Orin Backus M 34
Wife Maryan Backus F 27
Son William O Backus M 8
Son Charles E Backus M 6
Son John C Backus M 4
Daughter Mary E Backus F 2

Event Type: Census
Event Year: 1870
New York, United States [Rochester, Monroe]
Household Role Gender Age Birthplace
Orrin Backus M 49 New York
Mary Ann Backus F 42 New York
John Backus M 19 New York
Mary Backus F 17 New York
George Backus M 14 New York

Case and Exceptions on Appeal (Orin Backus of Hamilton Street in Rochester, New York, mentioned)

This Orin Backus in the 1892 census?  Also in the household was wife, Helen (Cook), and children, Nettie, Frank, and Clinton.

This Orin Backus who died in 1907 (date of birth 31 May 1821) and was buried in Forest Hill Cemetery, Fredonia, Chautauqua County, New York?  In 1892 Orin Backus had a daughter Nellie; in 1905, Orin Backus was living with Nellie Thorpe and her husband in Chautauqua County as the father in the household.  Clinton D. Backus, Nellie's sister and Orin's son, listed Nellie Thorpe as his contact person on his WWI Draft Registration Card.

The date of birth of Orin Backus who was buried in Chautauqua County was 31 May 1821; the date of birth of Orrin Backus (no death date noted) who was listed in Mount Hope Cemetery in Monroe County where wife Mary Ann was buried was 13 May 1821.  Was one of the dates (13/31) transposed?

I'm guessing that there is one Orrin Backus who is listed in two different cemeteries.
