Biju sealed in him.
I by age, I meant the age that their chakra chains would be effective to suppress the Kyuubi, which isn't something they do as Jinchuriki. The seal keeps the Biju suppressed, not the chakra chains while they are inside a human.
While your initial question is worth investigaing, I don't see why you are speculating about the cause of the destruction of the village. I think that when doing an investigation on something that is discussed in the manga, you should at least take into account the facts given in the manga. The least we can say from the manga is that Uzumaki village was destroyed because of their sealing Jutsu during the war. I doubt Kyuubi is the one who feared their Jutsu.
At least, the destruction is a little bit explained in the manga, and you should not ignore this. Someone did the job, or maybe all the people who feared them did it. I am pretty sure the Hokages know the truth. My primary suspect is Danzou and his friends. I also think Raikages are involved as well, and with no offense, the Uchiha can also be possible author of the massacre (specifically Uchiha Madara after maybe losing to Hashimara his precious Kyuubi).
Basically, it can be anyone. But I doubt it's Danzou. As twisted as he was portrayed, he always seemed to be the one who would do anything to make Konoha superior. He wanted power for that purpose and be on par with Hiruzen for what he has done for the village. Now, knowing that, Danzou wouldn't want to destroy a village Konoha is in good terms with.
That's just speculation, though. Like I said, it can be anyone.
Also, simplying destroying a village would not force it's population to scatter, just look at Konoha. IMO, when a clan is exterminated, it is done so in it's entirety. Look at the Uchiha Clan, when Pain destroyed Hanzou and all those who allied with him, and the Kekkai Genkai Genocide in Kiri. Clans were destroyed completely with 1 or fewer survivors in every case. At the start of the manga, there were 4 Uzumaki's running around, not to mention Kushina and possibly others survived the destruction of the village.
So, if they were indeed feared so much, wouldn't they have been exterminated with more prejudice?

Well, don't forget about Karin, either, apparently.
So far, whatever remained has been scattered. Wouldn't be surprised if there were other refugees from Whirlpool spread around that will likely never make it into the story.
For Naruto to be the host, Minato had to cut Kyuubi's chakra in two. Naruto energy was what was keeping Kurama in prison. The prison, water, and everything you see inside Naruto is nothing but his energy being used to lock the Kyuubi. Here, Kushina explained that the energy of the host is used to power the seal, and that when the host is a woman, she has to direct this energy towards the baby during brith - making the seal weak.
Taking this, and the fact that Kyuubi broke out at Naruto's birth, we could even say that the host has to be stronger than the tailed beast for the seal to work. By stronger energy-wise. We also saw that the seal start to open when Naruto start to use his own energy to perform his Jutsus.
Hashimara took Kyuubi from Madara many years before Kushina went to Konoha. From that time until Today, Kyuubi has been locked into a Jinchuriki.
The village of the Uzumaki was destroyed when Kushina was in Konoha, meaning Kyuubi was inside her. So there is no way Kyuubi can be the one who destroyed the village.
Uchiha Madara inside a Susanoo can do the job. The Uchiha clan can do the job. Danzou using Izanagi and Shisui eye along with the root aided by Hanzou can do the job. EVen a powerful uzumaki can do the Job.

It is entirely possible fictional scenerio: While trying to move the Kyuubi from Mito to Kushina while in The Land of Whirlpool, they fell under attack interrupting the sealing process, killing Mito, and thus letting the Kyuubi free. Kushina being a child at the time, may not of had full control of her chakra chains and couldn't capture the Kyuubi by herself, thus the Kyuubi was destroying shit until it was sealed in her, at which time the village was in ruins.
And how is there no way it could have destroyed the village? The Uzumaki were sealing experts, in fact Mito sealed the Kyuubi inside herself with no help. So wouldn't it make sense that they, the allies of Konoha, would take charge of moving the Kyuubi from Mito into Kushina, who was from their village? It is entirely possible that during that time they came under attack or something went wrong.
A powerful Uzumaki is entirely possible but what could have happened to make one want to destroy their own village?
We do actually know where it was. There was a map that showed it... I just gotta find it...Originally Posted by Delbi
http://narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/500/2 Viola. No wonder it was destroyed so easily, the country it was in was so tiny.
So this might further show that it was indeed ninja from Konoha that helped lead to it's destruction given where it was geographically.
Guess some were scared of what Uzumaki could create with seals, if we go by Orochimaru and Danzou. Hell, some of them could have gone rogue and taught few people seals as well.
I'm not sure if their strength is what was dangerous though. Maybe they were mediocre in strength, but expert in seals, which may not have been enough.
How far did they live from Konoha? Maybe there was no time since the attack came out of nowhere. If we don't see any Uzumaki in Konoha after the destruction, then chances are that Konoha did play a part in the destruction. Either that or the Uzumaki thought it could be a bad idea to move to Konoha. Maybe majority did move to lesser known villages for more obscurity.
