Thank you to all the various almanacs for this information in order to comprise this list. This list should be complete and goes back from 1890 to the present. Some are going to interpret this list in different ways. Some will say this list is surprisingly small, others will say that many died over the last 15 years. However you view it, let's just hope we don't have to update this list frequently.

Thanks for reading.
