It sounds as though the info was put into a software program that spit out a narrative, but that misinterpreted the info. A double date would be 1744/1745-1838. Double dating is the result of the switch from the Julian to Gregorian calendars in the British Empire (which included what would become the USA)in 1752.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregorian_calendar
