GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Margie Lindsey is celebrating her 113th birthday in Greenville July 4.  

She said she has no real secret to longevity. 

"I have been wondering that all my life," she said.  

She was born in 1900 when William McKinley was president.  She also said she spent many years on the cotton fields.

"I picked 200 to 300 pounds of cotton on the fields," she said.  

She talked about the years during the civil rights movement as well as living to see 20 presidents, including sitting President Barack Obama.

She said she has seen a lot over the years, but has no big plans to celebrate Thursday.
