Who’s Older Quiz – Round 3 Starts Today – guessing closed

I am terrible at guessing people’s ages, so for this first quiz of Round 3 I thought I’d see how good you are!  Tell me which author is (or would be if alive today) oldest.  If there are 3 list them in order from oldest to youngest.  Submit your answers in a comment by noon on Saturday (I’ll hide the answers til then).

No cheating.  No googling or looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system :)    Your first answers will be the only ones accepted.  Play every week or just one time, you are always welcome   It only takes once to be eligible for a prize.
