    Absolom Leach
    born 1825
    died 1923
    aged 99

    This picture taken before he died at age 99. His wife was Susan Brown. They married in Mercer County in 1850. He was born in Adair County. Both are buried at Hopewell Baptist Church in Mercer County.

    [The math in the above comments doesn't work. If he died in 1923, he would have been 98.]
