Oak Manor Nursing Home resident Arlie Brown has a family lineage that numbers 100, counting herself, but that’s not even one person for each of her years.

Brown turned 102 years young Thursday and was treated to cake and reminiscing of “olden” days by some of her descendants.

Brown had six children who gave her 20 grandchildren, who in turn provided 50 great-grandchildren, who have added 23 great great-grandchildren, or 99 in all besides herself.

Brown is originally from the Six Mile Valley area in Booneville, and although Arkansas is home to many of her family, it has extended today to Nebraska and Illinois to the north, Oklahoma to the west, Texas to the south and Tennessee to the east.
