As in all death records, and tombstone records, they are subject to errors, especially in age and Date of birth etc. sometimes tombstones are made long after the death,If there wasn't one to begin with or the old one fell apart,as in the case of very old wooden ones.also some were homemade and hand carved on stone, but can crumble in time.
