Glad to be of help. Age variations in census records is very common and usually towards making the person younger than they really were. Some of it may have been vanity but some of it was probably due to poor memory.

You might be interested in helping the grassroots effort to get Pennsylvania's older state death certificates more accessible and also available online: http://users.rcn.com/timarg/PaHR-Access.htm

The more people speak up the more likely we are to succeed.
