      100-Year-Old Woman Dies 20
      Days After Celebrating Birthday
      (Special News Service)
      Siloam Springs, Ark., Sept. 22. -- Just 20 days after celebrating her one-hundreth annivrsary, Mrs. James D. Denny, residing east of Siloam Springs, died suddenly at her home Sunday morning. Mrs. Denny, despiter her age, had been in excellent health, and her death came as a shock.
      One hundred and thirteen direct descendants, including her five daughtes, survive her. Her four oldest daughters, whose ages range from 76 to 83 years, live in Siloam Springs, three of them living with Mrs. Denny. The fifth daughter, Mrs. Percie Chausee, Fargo N. D., 63, was in Siloam Springs at the time of Mrs. Denny's death, having remained for a visit with her sisters and mother after coming here for the celebration of the centenarian's birthday. The other daughters are Mrs. Susan Bennett, Mrs. Sarah Bennett, Mrs Amanda Bennett and Mrs Emma Page.
      Thirty grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren, 32 great-great-grandchildren are still living. All five generations were represented at Mrs. Denny's birthday celebration, at which 28 descendants were present. The descendants are scattered over practically every state in the middle west.
      Mrs. Denny, whose maiden name was Miss Eliza Sackett, was born in Madison county, Ill., Aug. 30, 1826. At the age of 16 she married James D. Denny. Her husband was for a time a freighter between Illinois and the Pacific coast in a day when the Indians controlled the intervening territory, and he took part in the Colorado gold rush. Denny died 22 years ago at an age of more than 80 years. Mrs. Denny had been a resident of Siloam Springs for more than 20 years. Ten children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Denny, of whom only the five daughters survive.
