It is unlikely that this woman had a child at age 60. It's more likely that — given the poor record-keeping that existed at the time in her remote location and the faultiness of human memory — she's actually ~20 years younger than she claims to be. Which is still *really* old, mind you.

As a personal anecdote along similar lines: one of my coworkers has a parent in an assisted living home. While she was visiting him one day, one of the other old people living there claimed to be 99, before his son (who was also visiting) corrected him that he was actually 89. The old man isn't senile, it's just that age becomes less important to most people as they get older... before becoming more important again if you get very old:). I already have occasional trouble remembering how old I am, and I'm not yet thirty:P.

In this story there is no one who is still around from when this woman was young — and there hasn't been for several decades, so she has no one to remind her how old she really is.
