There's no hard proof in the form of a birth record or certificate that I'm aware of. The earliest source I've seen, the 1900 census, has him born in April 1890. This is what I use. Most official documents during his life gave 1893 or 1895.

So when was Redding born?
Wikipedia says 1893, another site says 1891.
His death certificate from 1948 says he passed at 59 which would mean his birth year was 1889.
