Pearl Gartrell

 

 

Age: 120?

 

Summary: oldest person in Florida who recently acknowledged that she was perhaps the oldest living person in the world until her death, who claimed to be born on April 1, 1888 (and would therefore be 120 years old if accurate) and said she did not have a copy of her birth certificate because she was not born in a hospital, but her birth date was recorded in a family Bible and whose Florida State ID card did not show the exact year of her documents because the computer could not activate the year 1888.

 

 

Cause of Death: Old age

 

Born: April 1, 1888?

 

Died: November 23, 2008
