I found this one by accident while taking one of the many back roads of Robertson County. General Walter W. Williams , reputed to have been the last surviving soldier of the Civil War. He is buried in one of the oldest public burial grounds in Robertson County. His daughter attributes the following to General Williams after the age of 100
* first airplane ride at 100
* rode a horse at age 103
* shot his last deer at 107
* appeared and danced on a tv program at 112
* given the honorary rank of General by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Grave site can be found at N 31 01.410 W096 25.422
Walter W. Williams was 117 when he died in 1959. The changes he must have seen since his birth is 1842!
