My husband's oldest "mother" was his grandmother Julia Waters who lived to be 90 years old and the youngest his great great grandmother Mary Richardson who died aged 37 the day after giving birth to her 8th child. This is amazingly similar to mine. My oldest was my grandmother who died at 93 and the youngest my great great grandmother who died at 34 after giving birth to her 7th child.
