A charlotte woman with 125 great-grandchildren and 116 YEARS old, has died. Hester Ford is believed to have been the oldest living citizen of the United States. She had 12 of her own children and lived in the same home for 50 years until she was 108. It was only at that age that she slipped in the bathtub and needed medical attention at the hospital. Otherwise, she had never even been admitted for anything else. What an incredible woman, who left a legacy of love.
