128 Year Old Woman Draws Another Breath

Once in a while, I encounter non-Coshocton related stories I must share. Yesterday, an El Salvadoran woman celebrated her 128th birthday. For those of you who are pounding on your calculator, she was born in 1878, meaning she grew up in the 19th century.

Other people who were born the same year included Joseph Stalin, Pancho Villa, boxing great Jack Johnson, Louis Chevrolet, and Elizabeth Arden. It's also the year Thomas Edison patented the phonograph and started the Edison Electric Company. The first American automobile was patented in 1879.
