LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Sarah Smith of the United States at age 110. She was born in Smartsville, Yuba County, California, United States on 1 January 1870. She was a sister, a wife, and a mother to 2 sons.

During the early 1980s, Sarah Smith’s family moved to Long Beach, Washington. They traveled in a covered wagon loaded with furniture, farm equipment, camping gear, and food supplies. The family acquired 250 acres of land along with a log house, which was later destroyed by fire. It was subsequently replaced with a two-story frame building surrounded by a wide porch. The Moore Ranch, as it came to be known, transformed into a beloved hub for community gatherings. The Smith family diligently cultivated fruits and vegetables while raising poultry, pigs, horses, and dairy cows. To supplement their income, her father operated a small store, catering to the needs of the local residents.
