According to Scripture, Terah dies at 205 years of age while in Haran, circa 1900 BC.

Genesis 11:31-32King James Version (KJV)

31And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

32And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.

Abram is said to leave Haran afterwards,

Genesis 12:4King James Version (KJV)

4So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

If Abram left within the year of the death of his father, then Terah was 130 years old when his son was born, circa 1975 BC.
