LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Katie Hatton of the United States at age 114. She was born in Spanish Camp, Texas, United States on 18 December 1877. Her parents were freed slaves. As a girl, Hatton assisted her father on the farm.

Hatton went to school in the Camp Zion Community at Spanish Camp and later attended Guadalupe College in Seguin. At some point, Hatton got married and had at least three children. Hatton was a member of the Camp Zion Baptist Church for more than 75 years.

At the age of 111, she surpassed Martha King‘s final age, becoming the oldest person ever to live in Texas. Subsequently, she likely became the first person in Texas to reach the ages of 112, 113, and 114. She held this title until (at least) 8 November 1995, when her final age was surpassed by Irene Frank.

Hatton passed away in Spanish Camp, Texas, USA, on 24 January 1992. Following her death, Kate Bottom (1881–1992) became the oldest (known) living person in Texas. She was survived by her three children, 13 grandchildren, and several great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

LongeviQuest congratulates Katie Hatton’s family on her posthumous recognition.
