CHICAGO (Reuters) –

"Elizabeth Bolden, believed to have been the oldest
person in the world, has died at 116, local media in Tennessee
reported on Tuesday.

Bolden, daughter of freed slaves, died Monday in a nursing home where
she had been living since suffering a stroke two years ago, the
Memphis Commercial Appeal newspaper and broadcast outlets in that city
said.

Bolden was born August 15, 1890, as Elizabeth Jones and married Lewis
Bolden in the early 1900s.

She had seven children,

40 grandchildren,

75 great-grandchildren,

150 great-great-grandchildren,

220 great-great-great grandchildren and

75 great-great-great-great grandchildren,.

Guinness World Records earlier this year had listed Bolden as the
oldest known person alive."
