        The world's oldest person according to the Guinness World Records is Besse Cooper. She's one of only eight people who have reached 116.
        Cooper was born in Sullivan, Tennessee, in 1896, according to the Walton Tribune. She moved to Monroe during World War I to become a teacher. In 1924, she married Luther and the couple had four children. Today, they has 12 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren, according to the Guinness World Records.

        Cooper has a secret to achieving 116 years of life:

        "I mind my own business," she told the Guinness World Records. "And I don't eat junk food."

        Well, that's a long life.

        Minding her own business - what a good philosophy to live by! Don't ya just love some of the records Guinness has.

        Chilly she was born in 1896 i don't think she is still around! That would make her how old....adding toes, fingers....

        Her age is an impressive factor, but what's even more impressive is that she still seems to have a really good physical and mental health/capacity.

          116 is an incredible age.  Is she the only person still alive on this earth that was born in the 1800's?

          This was what I found:

          A supercentenarian is someone who has reached the age of 110 years. There are estimated to be 300–450 living supercentenarians in the world, though only about 90 individual verified living supercentenarians are known. A supercentenarian is considered 'verified' if his or her claim has been validated by an international body that specifically deals in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group or Guinness World Records.

          Saw a facebook page for Besse so that you can wish her happy birthday.  Was going to post the link, but now I can't find it.  I'm not a good FB searcher...
