one hundred plus

ever wondered what somebody who has lived in three centuries looks like? so did mark story, this is what the woman on the right has experienced:

114 Year 226 day-old
African American woman ?
the 3rd oldest living person in the world,
and 2nd oldest living woman in the USA.

Both of her parents were slaves.

The family ate the food they grew.
She never watched her diet
and was never heavy.

She never smoked or drank,
and was 100 years old when
she first saw a doctor.

She was married to her second husband
for 72 years and has
3 children,
5 grandchildren,
46 great-grandchildren,
95 great-great-grandchildren,
and 38 great-great-great-grandchildren.

thanks to ‘pepijn’ for the tip
