World's Oldest Person Was Born in Piney Flats in 1896

And here's the census record to prove it, from the 1900 U.S. Census.

Besse Brown Cooper now lives in Monroe, Georgia, 45 miles east of Atlanta.

Besse became the world's oldest person on Monday when Frances Sanborn, reputed to be 115, died in Texas.
