Trusting Birth Dates

Classification: Query
I'm wondering how people decide which dates to trust.

Example, 1901 Irish Census says my great grand mother was born around 1873 but her grave stone (died in 1936) says she was born in 1888.

Personally, I'm inclined to take the date from the earliest source possible as its the closest to the actual birth event but I'm wondering how other people approach it?
