"Strange but true this rare circumstance"

Not my relative, but...

Grandmother Sample:

"Mr. S.'s mother came to this county, and lived to the remarkable age of one hundred and two, being the oldest person buried in the Gilboa Cemetery. "Grandmother Sample," as she was usually called, could read fine print without glasses for sometime before she died, and the most remarkable circumstance occurred just three or four months before her death. As perfect a set of teeth as ever filled the mouth of any person came through her gums. Strange but true this rare circumstance."
