Yes, some people have always made it into old old age. The progress that was made in the 20th century was at the other end of the line, with more children making it through childhood. Taking a bunch of 0's, 1's, and 2's out of the averaging equation makes a big impact on the final average.

Thank goodness for the woman who was buried with her 10 kids - not that she or they died, but that she and Abigail Talcott proved there have been women in the area. According to the statues in your previous posting, only males lived there! (The ratio of statues of/honoring women to statues of/honoring men is minute, in my experience.)


The fountain shows Indian women above the men and underneath the stag. Otherwise, everything else I showed pictures of was about the soldiers & sailors of the Civil War Memorial (not that women didn't serve, but they normally did so under disguise of being male - at least so I've been led to believe).


I knew that people would occasionally make it into the 80's, but that was not the rule. There just seemed to be an inordinate amount of people who made it to see 4-5 generations in the graveyard.
