He would be 182 years old....that is just amazing to me. Nobody could beat my Grandfater as he would be 130 years old if alive but I believe this is just insanely crazy. My Mother is still alive and is 82 and she has lots of Great Grandkids.

I don't know but this is really pushing the limit. My GG was born in 1827 and died in 1913. On my Mothers side they live a long time.....

I mention this as my Mom just haded me some info on it and it just blew me away.....

lol...

So I guess my GGF had 3 brothers and they all came to America together. When they were in NY they thru up 4 feathers and where they landed was the direction that each one headed out to make a new life in America. Pretty cool stuff to hear from my Mom today.

I'm still trying to convince myself the chick from last night was 21...

Seriously though, all my grandparents and great grandparents lived to be in their 90s or close to it.

Seems my GGF's wife has roots in America back to the pre-1700 stage...WTF! Of course I realize it is pre-America.

This is pretty amazing at the click of a mouse.....

Grand father born in 1899 died in 1999 after his 100th Birthday. It amazing sometimes to think of all the things that were invented or just came to be during those years. Came from Ireland to America missed his first boat ride on the Titantic due to illness so his best friend took his place

I should be so lucky! :D

I never knew my grandparents. Dad was an orphan and grew up in WV in the orphanages when they were very rough and brutal. I spent some time with my Moms parents but I was like 1-2 years old so I don't remember them. I do know that they had a TV which was a real big luxury back then and I put a hammer thru the screen. Not good.....haha I do know my Grandpa had three sets of teeth.

You are very lucky and of course you already know this. I would love to have sit down with my gramps and had a chew :)
