Ann Pouder, 110

Ann Pouder was one of the first documented supercentenarians in modern history. She was born in England in 1807. At the age of 12, she emigrated to the United States with her family and spent her life living in Baltimore, Maryland.

Pouder was married once, but became a widow early and had no children. At the time of her death on July 10, 1917, she was confined to bed, almost deaf and blind, but still sharp-minded when she passed at the age of 110.
