Hale Triplets

I had gone to Family Search to find some information about the Hale Family.  Frederick Hehl (Hale) married Christine Sophia Weisleder.  Sophia would be my grandmother’s sister.  I found a death certificate for a Hale, the child of Fred and Sophia Hale.  But as I looked at the date, I thought something’s not right here,  that date sounds familiar.  So checked on the children and sure enough there was a child born 2 days prior.  So further searching came up with a listing for birth records in Monore, Monroe, Michigan and it listed Walter, Warren and Hale, triplets born to Fred and Sophia Hale on 22 Aug 1891 and 24 Aug 1891.  The 3rd baby was stillborn, and no gender was given.  Now I have a Walter listed for the family born on 22 Aug 1891, but what about Warren.  I then found a death record for a Walter on Mar 22 1892, age 7 months.

Then there is another record for a Walter and Warren Hale, twins born 22 Aug 1892.  I believe that they were recorded twice, and because one of them died, they were listed as twins not triplets,  therefore the 3 baby was not included on the second listing.  Now if they were born in 1892, that was after the second baby died. Did she have triplets and then twins, but for them to be born on the same date 1 year apart, seems  questionable?

I do not find any other records for a Warren Hale, but the 1900 Census for Frederick and Sophia has a Walter George listed.  Is it Warren that died and the name Walter put on the death record, or did Warren survive and was called Walter?
