I would definitely read that as 61.

As regards her age, one of my ancestors was 99 when she died in 1930 but the civil record states she was only 80 so these things do happen occasionally.

It's not hugely surprising. My g-grandmother died at 82 or 66 depending on whether you believe the marriage or death cert.

I agree its not surprising. I have an ancestor who aged 18 years in the ten years between Censuses. That was often before and after marriage! The one I quoted just seemed so extreme as to cast doubt on whether I had the right person.

Guys, please keep this thread for just deciphering the handwriting. By all means, open a new thread to discuss the ages.

Cronebane is the name connected around there, but it looks more like Cormoria

There are townlands called Connary Upper and Lower nearby. Would guess this is a misspelling. It looks like Connorree.

Hove? Or Hore. Look at the top of the snippet, but the Rs are slighty different in the rest of the image. Any chance of seeing the full page, please?
