Longevity claimant

Antonia Santa Cruz (born 13 June 1905?) is a Brazilian longevity claimant whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).


Antonia Santa Cruz claims to have been born on a farm that then belonged to Queimadas, near Santaluz, Bahia, Brazil, on 13 June 1905. Her parents were Francisco Pereira de Santa’Anna and Anna Maria de Jesus. She was born on the feast day of Saint Anthony, which is why her parents named her Antonia. She had 11 children. She also adopted her nephew, Jose Luiz Medrado (aged 64 in December 2019).

In 2017, she had 68 grandchildren, 110 great-grandchildren and 35 great-great-grandchildren. In December 2019, she had a 104-year-old sister living in Rio de Janeiro. If she were verified she would be the second oldest living person in Brazil.

Antonia Santa Cruz currently lives with her 80-year-old daughter, Maria Medrado in Salgadalia, Conceicao do Coite, Bahia, Brazil, at the claimed age of 115 years, 227 days.
