8. Shirali Muslimov 168 Years
Shirali Muslimov is an interesting case. Some say his age is for real, most dispute his extreme longevity. Muslimov was a Talysh shepherd from the village of Barzavu in the Lerik region of Azerbaijan, a mountainous area near the Iranian border.

Elizabeth “Lizzie” Bolden born August 15, 1890 was an African American supercentenarian woman who, at the time of her death at age 116 years and 118 days, was recognized by Guinness World Records as the then world’s oldest living person. Elizabeth Bolden was one of only seven people worldwide that lived until age 116. Her birth was the last remaining documented birth of 1890.
6. Jeanne Calment
Jeanne Louise Calment born February 21, 1875 in Arles, France was a French supercentenarian who has the longest confirmed human lifespan on record, living to the age of 122 years, 164 days. She was very well known at age 113 on the centenary of Vincent Van Gogh’s visit to Arles.
5. Shigechiyo Izumi
Shigechiyo Izumi born June 29, 1865 was a Japanese centenarian who was titled the oldest living person after the death of Niwa Kawamoto, also from Japan. He also holds the world record for the longest working life. He worked a total of 98 years. His wife died at age 90, which is still a pretty good run.
Carrie C. White was recognized by Guinness world records as the oldest person in the world at around the time of her 114th birthday in 1988. Carrie was a resident of Palatka, Florida nursing home. She was in a nursing home not because of age, but due to a nervous breakdown in 1909, which left her institutionalized. Carrie is another case of dispute, however her documentation seems to be in order enough to give her the title of world’s oldest person between January 11th 1988 and February 14th 1991.
Sarah Knauss, was the oldest person to have ever lived in America. She died 33 hours before the year 2000. Sarah Knauss lived her entire life in Pennsylvania. She was born in a small coal-mining town called Hollywood. That’s right folks, Hollywood, the other Hollywood.
