19th Century People

By | Mar 9, 2010

On March 7, 2010 Mary Josephine Ray died. To her friends and family Mary Ray was a special person. And had it not been for the fact that she was the oldest person living in the United States, she would still be unknown to many of us. When she died she was considered to be the 2nd oldest person in the world.

Now the oldest living American is now Neva Morris, of Ames, Iowa. When this post first appears on March 09, 2010 she is 114 years, 217 days.

The oldest person in the world is Japan’s Kama Chinen at age 114 years, 302 days.

As the days past it is becoming more obvious that very few people are still alive that lived in the 19th Century, or to be more precise born on or before December 31, 1899. Any one born in the 19th century would now be over 110 years of age.

The oldest man in the world and also the United States is Walter Breuning, who was born on September 21, 1896. Presently he is the 7th oldest verified person in the world.

Daisy Bailey also died on March 7, 2010. Not that March 7th was any special day for deaths. Only Daisy Bailey was also born in the 19th Century, March 30, 1896.

    The 19th Century actually ended on Dec. 31, 1900. Anyone born in the year 1900 was born in the 19th century.
