Anna Murphy (née Fahey; 25 April 1867 – 23 December 1980) was an American supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group.


Anna Murphy was born as Anna Maude Fahey in Northampton, Massachusetts as the daughter of John and Anna Murphy Fahey. She married John Murphy in Northampton on 28 November 1906 and had one son. She was widowed in 1924 and lived with her son in Northampton.

Anna herself claimed to have been born on 15 April 1867, which was refuted by her birth record.

Murphy died in Leeds, Massachusetts on 23 December 1980, aged 113 years and 242 days, making her the oldest person to ever have died (unvalidated Eliza Underwood and validated Fannie Thomas were both older and alive at the time).
