Hi I thought I'd share this with you guys. A while back, I found the death certificate of my Great Great Great Great grandmother, Guadalupe Camacho. According to the record, at the time of her death, she was 115 years old. In all my years of searching through the records at Family Search, I've never seen something this incredible. Now I know most records back that recorded ages were usually somewhere around 1-5 years off but even if this is the case, that's still pretty old. Unfortunately, I dont have a marriage or baptism record to back up this claim. Also her last born child was back in 1847 which would have made her 64 at the time. There are several cases of women being able to give birth at such an advance age.

Here's the record.

That is so cool. Thank you for sharing such and interesting story. Can I ask her parents names / who her husband was?

Her Husband is Santiago Contreras Rodriguez. They lived in Santiago De Pinos, Jalisco.

Her parents's names are Cristanto Camacho and Trinidad Pena.
