I have put a ? for Mr. Zouein: January 1 is probably a placeholder (start-year marker) for cases with unknown date of birth.

7. Rudy Thompson (California) (b. 28 October 1912), 109 y.o. 
8. Willie Clark (Florida) (b. 12 December 1912), 109 y.o. 
9. Moon Fun Chin (Millbrae, San Mateo C., California) (b. 20 March 1913? in China), 109? y.o. 
10. Alphonso Wilkerson (California) (b. 2 April 1913), 109? y.o.

Please don't put question marks over Moon Fun Chin's age - his father was an American citizen, meaning Moon was an American citizen by birth. He first arrived in the United States on 9 July 1913 as an infant, after a month-long voyage. 

His 1936 marriage record also supports his claimed age.

John Howard Bailey's birthday was confirmed in July:

However, he's probably a few years younger:
The recorded date of Bailey’s birth is July 7, 1918. However, his daughter Lillie Nash said, “According to the courthouse, this is the year that records were recorded so they automatically added five years to anyone’s birth who was recorded that year. This brings his age to 105.”

@aquanaut_chalk This isn't a match as the page doesn't list Emeal among his children.

However, I'm 99.9% sure Zouein isn't 111. 1 January 1911 = 1/1/11 is a fabricated birthday.

It's still possible he could've been born in 1911, but on a completely different day. For example, there have been quite a few cases from Colombia with a placeholder DOB (which in their case would be 31 December) who end up being correct about their year of birth. 

If 1911 can end up being a logical placeholder year for immigrants, then we should find a higher number of people in the United States claiming to be born on 1/1/11. After searching through the Social Security Death Index, I found 7,587 people born on this day, which is basically the exact same as people born on 1/1/12 (7,859) and 1/1/13 (7,771). January 1st birthdays are, unsurprisingly, significantly higher than every other DOB, but it isn't any higher in 1911. The start of decades (e.g. 1890, 1900, 1910) seem to be relatively common years of birth for immigrant SC claims from developing countries, but Zouein is the only one claiming 1/1/11.

Has anyone been able to find early-life documentation on Joe Baker or Willie Clark? I've not been able to find any info on any siblings or parents of either of them, making such research difficult, but I was wondering if anyone else has had better luck.

Alfredo Fregosi born 9/11/1913 from California and Horacer Baummer born 12/17/1913 from Pennsylvania do not qualify?

Photo of Moon Fun Chin on his 109th birthday:

Hopefully he can reach 110 in around 2 months, since he would be the first fully verified Chinese-born supercentenarian.

I personally verified him, since I found documents such as his 1913 and 1924 immigration records, 1936 marriage record, 1940 WW2 draft card, and 1973 ID card. His case will be validated by LQ after he turns 110.
