Looking for Ezra WILKINSON of Yorkshire

Journal by gijuan

Looking to trace my Great-Grandfather's journey to New Zealand and before.
There is much conflicting information, but I will include what info I have.
Ezra WILKINSON born Yorkshire or Suffolk?, England either 1850, 1859, 1862, 1863. His headstone says he died 18th July 1943 aged 93, but that does not stack up with any births in that year in Yorkshire??

Parents: William WILKINSON and Sarah (maiden name unknown).
On Ezra's Marriage Certificate to Louisa MITAI (1st husband died) (nee STEVENSON), it states Ezra was born in Yorkshire, England, but on Ezra's son's (William MARSHALL WILKINSON) Birth Certificate it states Ezra was born in Suffolk, England.
Apparently William WILKINSON and family moved from from Yorkshire to Lund - a silvermining town in Nevada USA. After a while they moved to NZ and because of the 1880's depression - Ezras mum (Sarah) moved to Newcastle NSW, Australia with two of the children.
That is all I have been able to find out and the complicating factor is, "When was Ezra WILKINSON actually born and where"?

Surnames: MITAI STEVENSON WILKINSON
