However, this goes a long way, in addition to the census records that show a man over 60 several times, to confirm that Michael Dowling was an old man when he was here. I have yet to see anything that would indicate his age, which would be extremely helpful. In 1814 this guy would be 91, according to current records. Huh? That would be really unlikely!)
