Smith County woman celebrates 106 years

By Jamey Boyum - email

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - One-hundred six is a lot of birthdays. Most of us won't have that many. But, Ophelia Hampton of Smith County did.

Hampton's 86-year-old daughter moved back from Michigan a few years ago to help her out.

Ophelia had seven children, and has out-lived five of them. In fact, her birthday celebration was postponed because one of her daughters passed away.   Ophelia was a full-time mother all her life.

Ophelia's birthday is December 16, 1904.
