The age of Blackheart Beagle

Just a question; how old is Blackheart Beagle in the series?

According to "Life of Scrooge" by Don Rosa, this crook met Scrooge on the 
Mississippi near Loisville, Kentucky :) in 1880. At this time, he had three 
grown-up sons, so he must have been at least somewhere around 40. If that is 
correct, and he is born in 1840, and the stories find place in the 1950s, 
this vigorous man is over 110 years old!!! Is there a logic explanation on 
something like that?

In the "Scrooge 50 years in Duckburg" story, he seems to be very active. He 
even flies one of Gyro's flying bikes. Yikes. And that's supposed to be 
1952, where he is over 110 years old. Please help me out on this.
