Claire,

Yes, that is the generally accepted practice from the 1700s-early 1900s.  It has become muddled over the years because some researchers, et al, did not understand the nomenclature of the past.

I need some advice. 
I came across a grave stone which said that someone died in the 84th year of his age. Does this mean that this person was actually 83 years old when he died?

Thanks for your help.
