    Ames resident now oldest in US

    The oldest living American is now Neva Morris, of Ames, Iowa, at age 114 years, 216 days after Mary Josephine Ray of New Hampshire died Sunday.

    I guess Ames is a good place to live.

    That's crazy that of all the millions of people living in the U.S., the oldest one lives in Ames, Iowa.

    It's crazy when you really think about how long almost 115 years is, it's hard for me to even imagine how much her life has changed from when she was born to now.

    "She has some hearing deficiencies and a visual deficiency, but mentally she is quite alert and will respond when she feels like it and isn't too tired," said her 90-year-old son-in-law Tom Wickersham, who lives the same care center." 90 year old son-in-law? Holy ****!!!

    Re: Ames resident now oldest in US

    The number of people still alive that were born before 1900 has to be very, very small!
    Under 1000?
    Under 500?

    The number of people that have had a life spanning three centuries must also be very small. I would say all of them would have had to been born somewhere between 1885-1899. Maybe a few people born in 1798-99 made it to 1900, but I doubt it.

    I wonder who the first was, and what year they were born? I found an Elizabeth Pampo Israel that supposedly was born January 27th, 1875 and died October 14th, 2003.

    Re: Ames resident now oldest in US

    I think there are only a handful left of WWI vets. Maybe even 1 or 2 only? The WWII vets are now in their 80s.

    I will apologize in advance, but being the oldest person is usually short lived.

    She should have married a younger man.
