Nadja remember too that the ages of our slave ancestors were not always accurate...even when they gave the information their ownselves. I have several incidences with ages changing from either too old or not old enough from census year to census year. This isn't just a slave issue either...even my maternal non-african american ancestors couldn't keep track or didn't find it very important. Especially true among uneducated families who were barely scraping by to feed large families.
