This is the death certificate of Elizabeth Toner Loughlin Renehan (so far winning the "longest name" contest in our family). She's listed as being 65. Given that she was listed as 55 in 1910, 15 in 1870, and 5 in 1860, she should actually have been about 70. That's not far off. She died of pernicious anemia, which is the result of a B-12 deficiency. The son who signed her body over to the undertaker (Henry J Flood, and I realized where I know that name from: he's the undertaker who buried Patrick) was Thomas Loughlin. This son wasn't on the 1910 census when she was living with second husband Thomas Renehan, kids John and Katherine Loughlin, and nephew Willie Mulvaney. Because he shares his father's name, and had moved out of his mother's home before his younger siblings did, I'm going to take a leap and assume he might be the oldest - though I wouldn't venture to guess whether he was older or younger than Charles Thomas Loughlin, the brother who died at 8 months old in 1876.
