The only one whose age and birthyear appear to be correct is Rudolph Sr's.  Anna should be the same age as Rudolph, so my guess is she's the informant who has lowered her children's ages and made her marriage more recent to support her fib about her own age.  (Don't be skeptical, my grandmother used to lie about her children's ages to support her lie about her own age.)  Margaret was born Sep 1879, not Jan 1872 which is a double mistake because if Margaret were truly 18, she'd have been born in 1882, not 1872.  Rudolph Jr. should be 26, not 23.
