1839 Bible reunited with descendant of original family – orphan heirloom rescue!
Son of world’s oldest woman dies at 97 at home in Jamaica – I imagine Violet Brown is the first person to ever lose a 97 year-old child, no? I’m simultaneously sorry for her loss and impressed by this family’s gene pool.
Remembering the World’s Oldest Person, in the Objects She Left Behind – Such an interesting peek into the world of a woman who lived to 117. Reminds me of when my dad told me one of my great-grandfathers lived in one room and only had a small suitcase of possessions when he passed in the 1940s.
