Rebecca Startup, born in the 1790s and lived well into her 80s. She was born twenty or so years after the founding of the USA - can you imagine the stories she could tell?

For the record, this lady had nothing to do with the US. She is my relative and lived and died in England. I found her while doing my family tree. Her sister, Philadelphia ( a commonish name in Sussex) DID emigrate to the US in the 1800'sand settled their with her husband and family. Rebecca was not wealthy, I have a photo of the little house she lived in at the end of her life.x

An aunt by marriage's mother lived to be 102. When she was about 100 I said to my aunt something to the same effect and my aunt said her mother paid "very little attention to the news" and just took care of the family. So she had no opinion on the inventions that came along her lifetime, etc.
