Error corrections or clarifications

* William Desmond Taylor's birth certificate clearly states he was born on April 26th, 1872, not 1877, or 1867, as several published sources erroneously claim.

** Many reports erroneously state Taylor died in "Hollywood." His home (which no longer exists) was on South Alvarado Street, in central Los Angeles, not Hollywood.
