James Walter Wilson 1825-1945

His only claim to fame was that he was the oldest man in America, was never sick, didn't know the taste of medicine and died at the verified age of 120 years, 7 months and one week. Before he "just stopped breathing" he said, "Son, I am going to leave you today, I'm going home."
