The oldest living person in the United States resides in the good ole Buckeye state.

Lessie Brown, 113 years old, took the title after the death of 114-year-old Pennsylvania woman.

Lessie currently lives in the suburban Cleveland area and has five children, with three still living.

She also has more than 50 grandkids, great-grandkids and great-great grandkids.

Family members attribute her long life to eating a yam everyday until she was 110.
