Bio Note: Mary Ann never married and smoked a corn cob pipe. There is an ongoing debate about whether or not she never married because she smoked a pipe or smoked a pipe because she never married. Regardless, it appears that just as the first behavior may have contributed to her longevity, the second behavior most assuredly led to her untimely demise. While smoking in bed one evening at the tender age of 96, she burned down her house --and herself along with it!
