SIX SISTERS 475 YEARS OLD [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 19 February 1914
SIX SISTERS 475 YEARS OLD The joint ages of a family of six sis- I ters named Lamelle, living in a little village near Autun, France, total 475 years.

They are all in perfect health, anrd look forward to living 100 years each.
