Headstones of Centenarians
Managed By: Icon Here Hundred and Up
Description:
Headstones for Centenarians is a category for the collection and documentation of headstones that detail the honored as being aged at 100 years old or over at the time of their demise.
Expanded Description:

A Centenarian is an individual who has reached the age of 100. A Supercentenarian is an individual who has reached the age of 110.

Centenarians have been celebrated throughout history for their longevity. Even today, world leaders honor the birthdays of Centenarians with letters, awards and even money.

The superior longevity of a Centenarian and Supercentenarian often makes them privy to an extraordinary collection of dramatic and historical events. The century or more of life experience is a profound consideration. To see the headstone of a Centenarian or Supercentenarian who has passed from this life is like stumbling upon an unread history book.

Some headstones state the age of those at rest. Some headstones will provide Born and Death dates and these dates can be calculated to determine the age of the occupant at the time of their demise. Find the headstones, also known as grave monuments, for Centenarians and Supercentenarians.

We ask that all activities related to the posting or visiting of Waymarks in this category take place showing the utmost respect for the deceased, their families, and the surrounding area.

Always keep in mind that activities within any cemetery can be a point of great sensitivity among individuals both within and outside of our community. Do not touch, deface, or place items directly on markers or headstones. Please act appropriately and responsibly when you are in the area of these final resting places, including observing all posted hours of access. 

Instructions for Posting a Headstones of Centenarians Waymark:
Coordinates must be marked at the grave site using a handheld GPS receiver.

Provide a photo of the headstone where the information is legible. Providing more photos of the gravesite and area is encouraged. Keep yourself and your GPSr out of the photo.

Name the waymark with the age of the individual, followed by their name, then the municipal location.
For example:
109 - Emma Bradley - Jasper, Florida

If information about the Centenarian or Supercentenarian is known or can be found, include it in the Long Description. If no information is known, include some information about the world events that this individual would have witnessed in over a hundred years of life. Information about events that occurred during their birth year and death year can also be included.

If your waymark becomes obsolete by way of headstone destruction or theft, DO NOT ARCHIVE YOUR WAYMARK! Your waymark may be one of few, if not the only, photo and text documented record of the headstone. This can be an asset in identification and restoration of the site, as well as continuing to assist researchers.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Upload a photo of the headstone and, if possible, the surrounding area.(nothing should be placed on grave stone) If you can provide more information about the waymark than what is currently provided, please include that information in your visit log.
