That is a long life especially for the times my wife had a g.g.g. aunt Elizabeth ( Brown ) Klink who lived two days shy of 105 and dies in 1887 [[Brown-29627]]
OBITUARY: 'A LONG LIFE An Old Lady Dies at the Age of 105 Died October 22, A.D. 1887 The oldest lady in the State of Illinois, who was also the grandmother of Dr. G. W. Emery, of this city, died last Saturday. Her name was Elizabeth Brown Grant Klinck, and when she died she was within two days of being 105 years old. She was born October 24, 1782, at Upper Mount Bethel, Pa., the same year in which the British Parliament voted to stop the war against the Colonies. She was 7 years old when the first Congress under the constitution, with Washington as president, met. She was 15 when Napoleon entered upon his career of conquest, and had passed 30 when he died at St. Helena. Within the space of her lifetime the great inventions of the day were made and developed, and this country has increased from 3,000,000 to 60,000,000 people. The day before her death she took a long walk, and on the morning of the day on which she died she made her own bed. Her mind was clear and she could tell experiences and describe a whole century of events. Both of her parents lived to be more than 90 years of age, and a brother 87 years old is now living in Canada. Her first husband's name was Grant, and he died in 1795. In 1807 she married a Mr. Klinck. She was herself the mother of a large family, and of 97 other grandchildren are living at the present time.
