I'm reading about the current oldest living person - Susannah Mushatt Jones who is 116. Since we should not create pages at WeRelate for living people (for privacy reasons) let's use her father for this weeks contest. Wikipedia says her father's name was Callie. Look to see if he has an entry at WeRelate and if not you can create a page for him to earn points in the contest.
I learned from this CNN article that she put three of her nieces through college and that she attributes not being married long to her longevity.
