I happened upon a death notice in the American Jewish Year Book and an obit in
"The Advocate: America's Jewish Journal", Volume 42, regarding one of the
oldest rabbis I have ever heard of.

His name was Rabbi Isaac Reich, who died on August 11, 1911, in Szamos, Hungary,
at the age of 117. He died after a brief illness and was a celebrated "wonder"
rabbi who was consulted by people throughout Hungary. Amazingly, he was also
married four times. His last wife died in 1909 at the age of 93.
