A great article MrCatlord.
Thank you for posting it.
Ms. Francis has reached the age of Nina Willis and become the oldest American born in 1909, and oldest African-American since Hester Ford
And so far the oldest woman born in 1909.
For a change, a male has the year's longevity title - at this stage.
@chrisr Ushi Makishi is still the oldest woman born in 1909. Elizabeth will hopefully reach her age in a couple weeks
Sorry - I actually meant oldest living for Elizabeth.
