      (CNN) -- Catherine McCaig is 103 years old. Widowed 65 years ago, she lives a busy life, alone in Marshfield, Massachusetts. Her 95-year-old sister Winifred Whynot lives two doors away and comes over to visit nearly every day for a home-cooked meal.

      The two sisters are being studied by Dr. Thomas Perls, a gerontologist at Harvard Medical School. He suspects there are genes in their family that have allowed them to reach such an advanced age in remarkably good health. Their brother Nat lived to 93.
