    I don't think births were registered in 1900 in kenya,her official government birth date is probably a stab in the dark,back then Africa earned its title the dark continent,i once put a pic up on here of a gravestone I saw in tawi-tawi stating a guy had died at the age of 138? I think it was,totally implausible



    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again. But life goes on.
    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the passion that she shows to the outside world.

    Who knows? ... ... I can neither confirm nor refute its authenticy. ... but hours later (as if by some bizarre coincidence) I came across the undernoted link to an article on the demise of an Italian woman - born in 1899 - reputed to have been the last person alive from the 19th century, thereby beating the record of the woman I'd mentioned earlier.

    And, being descended from the Romans ... one would imagine the Italians to've been pretty meticulous in their approach to some kind of formal registration.
