I suggest that we all refrain from making comments on the appearance of the living supercentenarians. It does no good and family members may come across such posts, in which case it may also do harm.

You're right, sorry, I already deleted it.

As of 1 February 2024, the youngest validated person, born pre 1910, enters the top 10.

So without any further validations, this is the last top 10 of the pre 1910 era.

Perhaps there are still plausible cases from 1909.

 

But until that happens, this will be the last top 10 of the 1900-1909 era.

 

And to think that a little less than 2 years ago we had 1903 and 1904.

Interestingly the GRG page titled “List of supercentenarians born in 1909” has two unvalidated and anonymous Japanese cases - both of whom are listed as living and also older then JVPM who is currently the oldest validated person born in 1909.

They are 

Anonymous - Osaka - born 24 Feb 1909. And

Anonymous - Hyogo? - born 8 Mar 1909.

So things could possibly still change somewhat.

The person from Osaka passed away nearly 3 years ago.

From one of Marco's posts:

Not Available, 112, 1909.02.24 – c. 2021.03.09, Osaka (lived in Higashiosaka)

I imagine that this person from Hyogo is also in limbo.

It would be good if Japan released a list of the oldest people in the whole country for Respect For the Aged Day instead of each prefecture doing things individually, that could clear up some confusion regarding these sorts of cases

Sadly the 1900s era (pre 1910) cannot field a top 10 living persons as of 23 February 2024, so potentially Feb 22nd was the end of an era.

We hope for perhaps the odd pre 1910 validation to occur, but time will tell.

The era had ended with the death of Lucile Randon 1 year ago and another began.

 

When the TOP 10 is born only after 1910, it will be the end of another era and another will begin.

 

But with the death of Edie Ceccarelli (unless new validations) 1910 has entered the TOP 10.

 

I remember when Misao Okawa died and the 20th century (1901) had entered the TOP 10

And now Juan Vicente Pérez Mora has passed away...

 

Now I think that on January 3, 2025 the list will look something similar to January 3, 2015.

Just in this regard, we can only be grateful that the warmer northern hemisphere months of May to October are usually “kinder” to most of our supercentenarians, in terms of mortality rates.
