Herst Ford, America’s oldest man, has died at his home in North Carolina at the age of 115.
The African-American woman was born on a Farm in South Carolina in 1905, the Associated Press reported Wednesday.
She married at the age of 14 and gave birth to her first child at the age of 15, with 12 children.
Ford moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband, John Ford, for the rest of his life. Her husband died in 1963 at the age of 57.
Since then, Ford has lived alone until he was 108.
That year, she fell in the bathtub, causing bruising to her ribs, and her family insisted on moving in with her.
Speaking about the secret to longevity, Ford said: “I’m just living well.
