9.  Birthdate calculated using Ben Buckner's Birthdate Calculator.
Name Deathdate Age at Death Result
Catharine TROUP 20 Dec 1858 27d 3m 32y 23 Aug 1826
Elizabeth TROUP 04 Aug 1896 09d 0m 73y 26 Jul 1823
(Calculated birthdates should always be prefaced with "ca." you can't be certain the person who calculated their age did it correctly.)
The question, as always with Wagenseller, is the age at death wrong or is the birthdate wrong (i.e., which did he calculate)?  And in the case of Elizabeth, has age inflation taken place or was she fibbing about her age in the censuses?
