WHITE OAK AGE

Curious about the age of a huge white oak on our rural property in Appomattox County I followed the instructions given on this website http://mdc.mo.gov/your-property/your-trees-and-woods/backyard-tree-care/how-old-tree The circumference of this tree is 153". So did the following calculations: Diameter = 153” DIVIDED BY 3.14 (pi) = 48.7 48.7 x 5 = 243.5 This tree has been in the yard of a house maybe a 100 feet from a stream-fed pond since the 1930's when the house and pond were built. How close can the estimate of 243 years old be? How much younger b/c of the stream and pond and less competition since the 1930's? I would be so grateful for a reply.
