I have put a ? for Mr. Zouein: January 1 is probably a placeholder (start-year marker) for cases with unknown date of birth.

9. Moon Fun Chin (Millbrae, San Mateo C., California) (b. 20 March 1913? in China), 109? y.o. 
10. Alphonso Wilkerson (California) (b. 2 April 1913), 109? y.o.

Please don't put question marks over Moon Fun Chin's age - his father was an American citizen, meaning Moon was an American citizen by birth. He first arrived in the United States on 9 July 1913 as an infant, after a month-long voyage. 

His 1936 marriage record also supports his claimed age.

John Howard Bailey's birthday was confirmed in July:

However, he's probably a few years younger:
The recorded date of Bailey’s birth is July 7, 1918. However, his daughter Lillie Nash said, “According to the courthouse, this is the year that records were recorded so they automatically added five years to anyone’s birth who was recorded that year. This brings his age to 105.”
