Biography

Geert Adriaans Boomgaard is Notable.

Geert Boomgaard was baptized on 23 September 1788 in the Martini Church in Groningen.[1] He served in the 33rd Light Infantry Regiment of Napoleon's Grande Armée, and was awarded the Saint Helena Medal.[2] He married twice: in 1818[3] and 1831.[4] He was a captain on a boat, and retired in 1850. He had 12 children, born when he was in his thirties and forties. He died at an age of at least 110 years, 4 months, and 11 days (only his baptism date is known, not his date of birth),[5] making him the world's first fully verified supercentenarian. He outlived each of his 12 children by at least a decade, except possibly Abel, whose date of death is unknown.[6] None of the other 11 lived beyond the age of 56.
