Oldest person found in an online tree
« on: Tuesday 05 June 18 14:31 BST (UK) »
My brain (a weird and wonderful piece of machinery!), stimulated by the question: "Who's the oldest person found in a census?" http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=794662.0 dared me to pose this question.

Who is the oldest person you have found on an online tree? (the person MUST have both baptism/birth and death years shown)

and maybe some follow-up questions:
On an online tree, what is the oldest given age for a woman to have a child?
On an online tree what is the biggest age difference between a husband and wife?

RULES:
1) Please do not post sensible responses!
2) Please post links to the trees

Gees that sounds like my gggg grandmother, found the same thing on my tree. Giving birth at 100 ;D

I have found news paper clipping saying one relation died at 104 in the 1800's, somehow I think the dates may of gotten muddled with her birth.
