References

  1. Butariu's claim was accepted by Romanian authorities, but supporting documentation for the claim has never been produced for inspection by international gerontology organizations. However, nothing has been published to dispute the claim.[1]
  2. Butariu's stated birthdate is June 17, 1882, however Romania did not adopt the Gregorian calendar until March 1919 and therefore her age may be inflated by 13 days. The sources do not indicate whether her date of birth was as reckoned by the Julian calendar or had been adjusted to reflect the date as reckoned by the Gregorian calendar. June 17, 1882, on the Julian calendar was June 30, 1882, on the Gregorian calendar.
  3. The Social Security Administration (USA) recognizes Beard's claim, based on census information, but that census match is not universally accepted.
  4. The day count for Martha Graham is an estimate as her month of birth is known but not her date of birth.
  5. Hardy may have been born on January 6, 1894, and therefore may have been 112 years, 335 days old at death. [2]
