Now that is cool. My grandmother didn't know how old she was but she had very vivid recollections of WW1 (yes ONE) times and talked about the first, car, radio etc she ever saw. Mind blowing and she died in the 90's.

I remember reading about the "last link to the 18th century" - I wish I could find it. A woman whose father was born in 1799, but fathered her in advanced age and she didn't die until 1975 or something. The idea that a child of someone born in 17-ANYTHING having been alive during my lifetime blew my mind.

btw the claim of John Salling was debunked.

Not entirely accurate. 1 pension was still being paid out as of Jul 2013 (2 were being paid in 2012). In both cases, it wasn't a spouse, but a surviving child recieving benefits. The children were most likely disabled or mentally handicapped prior to turning 18 and the mothers deceased at the time of their fathers' passing in order for them to continue to receive pay and benefits.

It's still pretty fascinating though, knowing that the child of a civil war vet is still alive. In this case, the surviving child is in her 90s and living in a nursing home. She receives a little more than $800/mo from her father's pension.

Related Fun Fact: The last Union veteran, Albert Woolson, died in 1956 at age 109. The last Confederate veteran, John Salling, died in 1958 at age 112.

FF: The government still pays two pensions from the Civil War. Two soldiers in their 90's who fought in it, ended up marrying some 18-19 year olds before they died thus giving them benefits, and the woman are still alive today.

Fun Fact:

Jerry Maren is the only one of the 124 Munchkins from the Wizard of Oz who remains alive to this day. He was a prominent one too - the center (green) member of the Lollipop Guild. He was 19 at the time of filming, and is 94 today.

Ten child actors also dressed as Munchkins to add to the numbers. One child actress (i.e. not a dwarf) remains alive. Priscilla Clark is 85, having been 10 at the time of the production.

Well, damn - I stand corrected.

Is there an Awareness Week for things I was not aware of?
