I found a newspaper article reporting on the 115th birthday of Charlotte Hughes (1877-1993). It even includes a photo of her at the age of 115, which is the first one I've seen of her at this age.

Hartlepool and Billingham Herald and Post, 05 Aug 1992:

Some articles on Åsne Hustveit (1879-1989), sourced from the National Library of Norway:

I couldn't access a few of the articles, since it seems like some of them are only accessible at the library.

Many more articles on her are available on this website, so I chose just 5.

Finally found an obituary of Gertrude Wilson (1889-2001) in the January 23, 2001 edition of the Waco Tribune. Anyone able to clip it?

Ok, debut post;

Can anyone see if they can find a newspaper article for a man named Booker Franklin Fitzgerald, who died in Lynchburg, Virginia on 16 April 1991, aged 109/110?

(For reference, he was born in Pittsylvania Co. on October 15 1880/1, and he married three times.)

There appears to be an obituary for Booker on Ancestry.

Can anyone check if the two Newspaper.com entries for South Carolina (found here) are for Fred Miller (9/20 May 1894 - 16 May 2005)?

Interesting behaviour for a new member, Fish. Please tell me how you are going to convince us you're not a second account for Futurist.

I can vouch for their existence as a separate person, although they are a frequent co-researcher with him.

Thanks for indicating this, but we'd need more evidence.
