Her daughter is 94 - I wonder if she may be the oldest person with a living parent?

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

Elizabeth Francis will now become the oldest living person in the USA (albeit not the oldest living person born in the USA)

…. following the sad passing of Edie Ceccarelli.

Harry Patch, "the Last Fighting Tommy", was passed away on 25 July 2009, the same day as Elizabeth Francis become a Centenarian.

Given her date of birth, Elizabeth Francis may be the last American resident who having a memories from before WW1 began. A small coincidence, but I think it is an interesting connection with the last surviving WW1 soldier.
