James J. Ackerman, NJ, b. 1802

I have a dilemma:

The accepted date of death for James is 30 Nov 1878. This is what appears in Tobey's genealogy (Vol. 2, #6.70) and elsewhere; and wife Rachel (Valentine) is listed in the 1879 Paterson city directory as widow of James. However, James appears in the 1880 federal census, living at the same address in Paterson with wife Rachel, son Abraham, son William and wife Leah (my ancestors) and one of their children, Sarah. James's age in the census is about 76 - so 2 or 3 years off - but who else could it be?

Anyone who can clear this up..... Help!
We'd be really grateful.
