Sylvester Melvin, as an  adult

January 3, 2015; Sylvester Melvin was born in Rubicon Township, Greene County, Illinois on November 29, 1851 and passed away in Illinois on March 12, 1962, at the age of 110 years, 103 days. At the time of his death, Melvin was the oldest verified man in the world.

He graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University in 1878 and subsequently became a respected teacher. In 1880, he married Addie Strickland. The marriage produced four children.

In the late 1880s Sylvester Melvin acquired a farm of 100 acres. Working tirelessly on the farm over many years, he developed an increasingly comfortable living for himself and his family. As his financial resources increased, Melvin gradually bought more land and eventually went on to own four hundred acres of farmland. In 1889, he began the breeding of Aberdeen Angus cattle, Suffolk sheep and Poland-China hogs. By 1905, he had a herd of 75 cattle and also owned a cattle firm called ”Sylvester Melvin and Sons”. In 1904 he was one of the exhibitors at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition at St. Louis, where one of his cattle took second place in an auction, and he also took second place with his flock of sheep. In 1903 he won fourth place on a cattle auction at the International Exhibition in Chicago and achieved third place in the same auction at that exhibition in 1904.

Melvin was an active member of the Republican party. He was elected a member of the county board and served as supervisor for the Rubicon township, acting on the judiciary committee.

In 1900, Melvin became secretary of the Greene County Mutual Fire Insurance Company. At age 107, he was still working for the same company. As a centenarian, he was capable of raking leaves in his garden, and could remember the American Civil War of 1861 to 1865. On his 109th birthday, the local mayor declared it the ”Sylvester Melvin Day”. His secret to longevity was ”just keep from dying”.
