LongeviQuest recently reviewed the case of Maud Farris-Luse of the United States– a previously validated supercentenarian who held the title of the world’s oldest living person at the time of her passing.
On 6 June 2001, the Gerontology Research Group validated her birthdate as 21 January 1887, which was her claimed birthdate. However, in August 2023, after reviewing documentation discovered by Jimmy Lindberg, the Global Validation Commission reached the conclusion that Farris-Luse was a month younger, born on February 21, 1887. Therefore, her final age was not 115 years, 56 days, but 115 years, 25 days.
Farris-Luse held the record of being the oldest person to pass away in the U.S. state of Michigan until June 18, 2014, when her final age was surpassed by Jeralean Talley.
