(Calculated birthdates should always be prefaced with "ca." you can't be certain the person who calculated their age did it correctly.)
It appears Margret was fibbing about her age, as widows are inclined to do; either that or there's a mistake in the records.

Early Railroading...
The first conductors were "Bill" Smith, "Cheese" Burtis, Horace Kelly, and George Elsworth; and the two wheel-horses were named "Turk" and "Dick"; Captain Dexter was one of the drivers, and George Long was at this period the "Express," said express consisting of himself and a little leather bag, with which he went daily between Albany and Saratoga.  (George Long, who is yet at his post as chief baggage-master, is a man of an iron frame and withal of great probity of character.  One day preceding Christmas, before the days of railroads, he walked from Albany to Whitehall a distance seventy-five miles between 4 A.M. and 8 P.M. to spend the Christmas with his aged mother.  So much for his physique!)
