Linnie Jones (née Parrott; 22 March 1872 – 11 February 1984) was an American woman notable for her long lifespan.


Linnie Parrott was born in Kentucky on 22 March 1872 as the daughter of Joshua and Nettie Parrott. She married a man named Morris J. Jones at the age of 15 and had three children with him, Hubert, Olive and Helena. They moved to Colorado some time before 1910.

Linnie Jones died in Wheat Ridge, Colorado on 11 February 1984, aged 111 years, 326 days.

From 2003 to 2012, Jones was believed to be the world's oldest living woman when she died. The validation of Augusta Holtz meant she was bumped down to second-oldest.
