Book of Mormon: How Old Did They Live to Be?

So, how old did some of those guys in the Book of Mormon live to be?

*Nephi1: 71-83 years old, estimate (600 BC – 544 BC = 56; +15-23 years, + 0-4 years)
*Alma the elder: 82 years old (Mosiah 29:45) (estimate 25 years old when Abinadi preached: 148 BC – 91 BC = 57 years; 82 -57 = 25)
*King Mosiah II: 63 years old (Mosiah 29:46)
*Alma the younger (before he was likely translated): 54-61 years old ((124 BC – 73 BC) + (3-10 years))
*Helaman: 40-50 years old, estimate (Alma 62:52) (74 BC – 57 BC, + 20-30? years)
*Moroni1: 43 years old, likely (Alma 43:17, 63:3)
*Mormon: 79-90 years old (Mormon 1:2; Mormon 7): (385~401AD -322 AD + 11 years = 74~90)

That’s quite a range! Note that whether young or old, they lived long enough to complete their mission…
