It is with great delight for LongeviQuest to announce the age validation of Revah Stokes at 110 years old. She was an American supercentenarian recognized as one of the oldest living residents of Kansas at the time of her death.

She was born as Revah Leon Hafer on 26 July 1911 (claimed to be 23 July 1911) in Alliance, Nebraska, USA. Revah had at least four siblings younger than her. Her family moved from place to place as her father would buy stores to renovate and then sell them for a living. In 1919, she went under a medical operation on a dining room table to remove her appendix.
