How to estimate dates from age

+5 votes

I have a date of birth as Oct. 6, 1789.  A possible FAG memorial says
"age  86 yrs, 6 mos, 14 days"  Is there a program/chart that converts that to a
possible death date?

I do not know about a chart or program, but I would say it is April 20, 1876

Great question!  I like to use this website to calculates dates and dates between days:

https://www.timeanddate.com/date/duration.html

I use the duration-between-two-dates calculator shown above on this link when I sometimes add a person's age at death to their profile--but there are a number of good date calculators included on this page for adding or subtracting days, months, years and so forth. 

You can book-mark this page to have it handy when needed, if you find it as useful as I do.  :-)

Many thanks.  Rodney's answer agrees with the charts.  He certainly has more math skills than I do.  I even had to  enter the numbers twice before
artificial intelligence supplied me an answer.
