Obituary: Susannah Mushatt Jones, 116, the world's oldest person and the last American born in the 19th century, has died:

Born July 6, 1899, in Lowndes County, Alabama, Jones was the granddaughter of slaves. She dreamed of becoming a teacher, but couldn't afford tuition to the Tuskegee Institute and instead moved to New York, New York, and worked in child care.

Jones was briefly married, from 1928 to 1933, but had no children. However, she had more than 100 nieces and nephews. When Time magazine asked her secret for longevity, Jones just offered, "Believe in the Lord." Some attribute her long life to clean living: she never smoked or drank alcohol. But she ate four strips of bacon for breakfast every morning, along with scrambled eggs, grits, and a multivitamin.
