Unfortunately, this story has come to the fore owing to Guinness Book of World Records week (ending 11/13).
How many Americans know, or care? Check out the piece in The Grio here. Nat's grandma is 96 but that's nothing compared to these ladies--all of whom appear to have their wits (and wigs LOL) about them. Maggie Mae is 114; the baby sister is 103. Carrie Lee no doubt has "middle child" syndrome at 107. Imagine the things these women have seen. And endured. That's American History, talking to you.
