US woman, 100, has bank account dating to 1913

By Doug Whiteman, Associated Press

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (AP), Jun 03 - A woman in Ohio has been treated to a birthday party at her bank - where she still holds the same savings account her father opened for her in 1913.

June Gregg turned 100 on Thursday. She recently mentioned to a friend that her account with a Huntington Bank branch in southern Ohio dated back to before World War I.

Branch manager Doug Shoemaker did some digging and says he confirmed it was true and that the account number changed just once, when Columbus-based Huntington acquired what had been called the Savings Bank in Chillicothe (chil-ih-KAH'-thee).

Gregg says her father wanted her to learn how to save. The bank manager says the account has helped the woman become financially comfortable.
