Obviously, almost most of these dates and places are guesses, so nothing here can be relied upon without further documentation.  But certainly, no woman ever had a span of fecudity as long as 40 years.  Even 30 years is a stretch.  Twenty-five years is the typical span, but only if the woman married young.
