World oldest person dies at 116 in brooklyn

Postby Amesinlola » Fri May 13, 2016 4:38 pm

The oldest person in the world, who also happened to be a Brooklynite, died at 116 at her senior home Thursday night. Susannah Mushatt Jones was born July 6, 1899, and was the only American still around who'd lived in the 19th century.

Jones cedes the title of world's oldest person to Emma Morano, from Italy, who was born on November 29, 1899. At just a few months younger than Jones, she's the oldest in Europe and the last person born before 1900 now left in the world.
