Ages such as this, from an IPM, are notoriously inaccurate. The
typical language would be, "aged 24 and more", so accuracy is not a
known hallmark here.
I agree, but I'm actually stating something completely different.
That the "24" may be accurately referring to the grandson, and someone has
conflated that two persons into one.
If the IPM in question can be found, it's possible it might clear up more
than one problem, at once.
