Adele Dunlap 

Meet Adele Dunlap, America's Oldest Person, according to The Record Newspaper she became the country’s oldest person earlier this month following the death of Goldie Michelson, of Worcester, Massachusetts.

She also is the 10th oldest person in the world, according to the Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group, which tracks supercentenarians, people 110 or older.

Dunlap lives at the Country Arch Care Center in Pittstown, where she first arrived at age 99 ½. Asked how it feels to be the oldest American, she told the newspaper: “I don’t feel any different.” Asked what it means to be an American, she said: “Well, I’ve never been anything else.”

Dunlap taught school before marrying and settling down to raise the couple’s three children. Her husband worked for an insurance company and died in 1963.

Although, she doesn’t give an explanation for her longevity, her 86-year-old son, Earl, (still at a loss to credit any particular thing for his mother’s long life). gave some chilling news

“It’s hard to say,” Earl Dunlap said. “She never went out jogging or anything like that. She’s not really thin, but she never weighed more than 140 pounds. She smoked, and when my father had his first heart attack, they both stopped. I think she ate anything she wanted.”

Despite the fact she was born Dec. 12, 1902, in Newark, she often gives a younger age when asked how old she is.

“Last year, when we were telling her it was her 113th birthday, she said, ‘No, no, no, I’m only 102,'” recalled Susan Dempster, the care center’s activities director.

Dempster said Dunlap is a passive participant in daily activities and socializes minimally, but looks forward to Girl Scouts’ coming to sing Christmas carols.
