SAID TO BE 116
Catherine Cushenberry, colored died in Chillicothe, Ohio on Monday at the remarkable age of 116 years. She was born in fauquier county, Va. in 1780 and the record of the county show that in 1792, at age 12 years, she was purchased by a man named Craigen living near Moorefield, in what is now West Virginia. She passed through a number of hands after that, until 1802, when she was the property of Mrs. Sarah Dyer of Pendelton county, W. Va. Previous to that time she had had twelve children, and one of them George HerBert, had purchased his freedom and moved to Chillicothe. In 1862 after a long search, he found his mother in Pendelton county and purchased her freedom for $125. She has lived in that city ever since with two of her sons. The whereabouts of all her other children are unknown. She has been entirely blind for thirty years, but retained her mental faculities to a remarkable degree up to within the past three months-- Philadelphia Times. [Manning Times, Nov. 4, 1896; Sub. by.
