Here is an article profiling the last two people from the 1800s:


Looks like Morano has deteriated :(.After seeing that article I now don`t think either will be sticking around for much longer!

well there were 13 'Victorians ' at the start of the year and 8 of them have died  and we're not even halfway through the  year so it's not looking good for them !

I'm afraid we might welcome 2016 without anybody from the 19th century.

BTW, I'm sure Emma Morano/Susannah Jones (but probably Enma) will get a TON of media attention when she dies, being the last living person born in the 1800s.

I have just read a description of Jones health and I do not think she will be featuring in anyone 2016 DDP lists.

Jones won't last long because she is said not to be doing anything for her health.

down to 6 Victorians with the death of Antonia Gerena Rivera at 115   http://www.findagrav...&GRid=147305043&

So, will any Victorian see 2016?
I reckon at least one will.
Definitely Jerelean Talley. She's really healthy and strong for her age. On the other hand, I thought the same about Gertrude Weaver... and she lasted 5 days with the title.

And by 'Definitely' RadGuy means maybe.

just 2 people born in the 1800s still alive then

Yes, Susannah Jones of the United States (born July 6th, 1899) and Emma Moran of Italy (born November 29th 1899).  Who do you think will be the last one standing?  I will go with Emma (I am banking on the good Mediterranean diet to see her through).


Interesting. It's a battle of bacon and eggs. Jones loves her bacon, Morano slurps down 3 raw eggs a day (and has avoided Listeria successfully). I think Jones will go first for no particular reason other than Morano's doctor seems to think her health is amazing.
