Ferdeline Vergelas-Tamarin (1903-2013) validation

The GRG announces the age validation of Ferdeline Vergelas-Tamarin. Here follows a short biography from our correspondent for France, Sylvain Grosgeorge :

Ferdeline Vergelas-Tamarin was born June 1st 1903 in Petit-Canal, Grand-Terre Island, Guadeloupe, France. Her mother was Emilienne Tamarin, a 37 year old farmer, an unwed woman.

Auguste Vergelas was officially recognised as her father on May 16th 1915.

She had at least 6 half-brother and half-sisters.

She had eight children, which is quite rare for a supercentenarian. 

Ferdeline died on August 13th 2013, aged 110 years, 73 days in Guadeloupe.

Her age was verified by Martin Miet and Sylvain Grosgeorge, later accepted as valid with a retroactive date of April 7th 2016.
