When I was a boy, my grandma showed me a newspaper article on her grandma who was the oldest living person in her state, which I think is Zacatecas, Mexico. I'm trying to find that article, but it's not easy. Or anything about this woman. Does anyone have suggestions?
Through Ancestry.com search features, I found one centenarian who is part of my tree who lived to be 110. Her name was Tereza Valdez( Became Mendez when married to Juan Mendez). Her son's (Jacinito) marriage record fortunately mentions that his father died but his mother, Tereza, who is 110 is still alive. That was in the year 1944.
