Letitia Tyler at 125


Letitia Tyler, the oldest inhabitant of Virginia, died at her home in Richmond several days ago. Her relatives say she was 125 years old, having been born in New Kent county in 1773. She had great-great-grandchildren. She went to Richmond fifty years ago with the family of Mr. Joshua Williams and was a nurse for many generations in the Williams family. Her mother was a half-breed Indian.
