Ann Pouder (April 8, 1807 – July 10, 1917) was an early supercentenarian. This photo was taken on her 110th birthday.

A supercentenarian is someone who has lived to the age of 110 years or more, something achieved by only one in a thousand centenarians. A very small number of supercentenarians have lived to be 115. Early uses of the word meant a person well over 100, but now it is just known as people who are 110 or older.

Jeanne Calment had the world's longest verified human lifespan (122 years 164 days).[1] Since 22 July 2018, the current oldest verified living person is Kane Tanaka, who was 115 years old when she got this title but is currently 118 years old.

Jiroemon Kimura (1897–2013) is the longest lived documented man at 116 years 54 days.
