This grave is on the cemetery St. Elisabeth in Lage Vuursche/Baarn (NL). It seems that the 2 oldest nuns were born in 1806 and 1809 and died in 1974. More than 165 years! This must be two typos. I think.

    The dates, would that be Century Old Style?

    Yes, maybe — hard to say for sure. The neck of ‘2’ appears more straight, but that might be due to the reproduction.
