    I have been curious about this for a while now, i don't know why.

    and how would you find out how many there were?

    sorry f I'm being morbid, I've been up for 24 hours

      I don't think so the 19th Century ended in 1900 and the 20th Century began in 1901-2000 so if there is a soul that is alive do let me know. smile
      If you are talking between 1901 until 2000 (20th Century) there are still millions of us including you. smile

    I just thought about it again, and there are people born in the late 1800s still alive...from the 19th century.  I was correct the first time.

    According to that link the 10 oldest people currently living were born in 1895 & 1896...so yes.

        finally managed to write that hub. I'm not feeling the writing vibe of late but I have been thinking about mortality a lot, I hope it's OK.

    I always failed to explain my nephew about why it is called 19th century with years in 1800.  neutral oh well, back to school. big_smile

    The specific answer is about 37 people are alive who were born in the 1800s. Source: Wikipedia's List of Supercentenarians

      And you needed to raise a 21 month old dead thread to post what was already posted? roll

        I think that 1900 also qualifies. The first year of the 20th century was 1901.

    I'm mid forties, somewhere I have pictures of myself, my children, my sisters children and grandchildren, our mother, our grandparents and my grandfathers aunt and uncle - Six generations all still alive, the oldest being just over the 100 mark!
    But still not from the 19th century - but almost!

    In relation to this thread, if you are looking for data about countries with the highest life expectancy - average age people live.


    Japan and China are the top two countries with highest life expectancies. Must be their diets, they eat fishes and noodles. Plus their "method of healing" - acupuncture/acupressure and herbs etc...

    Japanese women live longest among all population if you compare by sex and country
