This is a matter of putting the pieces together as you find them. Please read carefully.
Again, this appears to be the birth record transcription for your ancestor, John Koller, (familysearch.org, Wisconsin Births and Christenings, 1826-1926), The birth month and year match the data in the 1900 Census.
Name: T. J. C. Kjoler
Birth Date: 13 May 1884
Birthplace: Racine, Racine, Wisconsin
Father's Name: Frederick C. Kjoler
Mother's Name: Maron K. Kjoler
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: C00325-5
System Origin: Wisconsin-ODM
Source Film Number: 1305147
**Note, this birth was registered with the State, whether there is more data on the actual document is not known, the only way to find out is either obtaining a copy of it or viewing the film (at an FHC) it was transcribed from. The actual document is NOT ON-LINE.
This appears to be his SSDI death record, note the MATCHING BIRTH DATES of the birth and SSDI records. I'm putting 2+2 together from the evidence I'm finding on-line.
Social Security Death Index [Ancestry.com transcription]
Name: John Koller
Last Residence: 53405 Racine, Racine, Wisconsin
Born: 13 May 1884
Died: May 1973 [10 May 1973 per Wisconsin Death Index]
State (Year) SSN issued: Wisconsin (Before 1951)
With this data you can obtain a copy of his SS-5 application. This will have his profession, where he was working at the time, his spouse if any, at the time, and other data. It was issued before 1951, but the exact date is not known from what can be seen in the transcription, only the document will have that data. Read here: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~rwguide/lesson10.htm.
You can also obtain a copy of his death cert, per the link I posted above. The informant (the person who gave the data to the registrar) listed on the death cert may be of interest.
You can also post on the Racine county board: http://boards.ancestry.com/localities.northam.usa.states.wisconsin.counties.racine/mb.ashx, and request for someone who may be able to search at the library or the on-line system restricted to library card holders for an obit. You have the exact date of death. That helps volunteers know exactly when and where to look.
