Hi all,

I've located this paper, dated 10 Feb 2013, stating a Mrs. Edith Erdman would celebrate her 110th birthday that day. Her actual date of birth is 13 February 1903. Would anyone know whether she has made it to her birthday?

Here's the paper:

Here http://storage.cloversites.com/belprech ... 202014.pdf

we have a confimation that she is alive at the beginning of Februay 2014.

So she is a supercentenarian and is near to 111.

I have already send a message in Yahoo Group.

I add here some finding about her case:

From this article http://gallipolis.uber.matchbin.net/pri ... ly/6707010

we know that her full name is Edith Evelyn and she was born on Feb. 13, 1903, in Meigs County so a possible match for her is:


Edith Evaline Smith born on Feb 13, 1903 in Long Bottom, Meigs, Ohio to Jack and Ida (Green) Smith.

1910 census: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MLXD-116 (birth year 1903 )

obituaries of two nephews that confirm that her maiden name was SMITH:
