The parallaxes of these stars determined by the new Hipparcos reduction average 17% accuracy, in contrast to our new HST parallaxes, which average 1% accuracy and have errors on the individual parallaxes ranging from 85 to 144µas. These parallax data were combined with HST Advanced Camera for Surveys photometry in the F606W and F814W filters to obtain the absolute magnitudes of the stars with an accuracy of 0.02-0.03 mag. Six of these stars are on the main sequence (MS) (with -2.7<[Fe/H]< -1.8) and are suitable for testing metal-poor stellar evolution models and determining the distances to metal-poor globular clusters (GCs). Using the abundances obtained by O'Malley+ (2017ApJ...838...90O), we find that standard stellar models using the VandenBerg & Clem (2003AJ....126..778V) color transformation do a reasonable job of matching five of the MS stars, with HD 54639 ([Fe/H]=-2.5) being anomalous in its location in the color-magnitude diagram. Stellar models and isochrones were generated using a Monte Carlo analysis to take into account uncertainties in the models. Isochrones that fit the parallax stars were used to determine the distances and ages of nine GCs (with -2.4≤[Fe/H]≤-1.9). Averaging together the age of all nine clusters led to an absolute age of the oldest, most metal-poor GCs of 12.7±1.0Gyr, where the quoted uncertainty takes into account the known uncertainties in the stellar models and isochrones, along with the uncertainty in the distance and reddening of the clusters. Description: Each program star was observed with the HST Advanced Camera for Surveys-Wide Field Camera (ACS/WFC) in the F606W and F814W filters. The CTE-corrected ACS/WFC images for the program stars were retrieved from MAST. These instrumental magnitudes were corrected for exposure time, matched to form colors, and calibrated to the VEGAMag and ground-based VI systems using the Sirianni+ (2005PASP..117.1049S) photometric transformations. Ground based photometry for all of our program stars were obtained using the New Mexico State University (NMSU) 1m telescope, the MDM 1.3m telescope, and the SMARTS 0.9m telescope. See appendix A1 for further details. We used HST FGS-1r, a two-axis interferometer, to make the astrometric observations. Eighty-nine orbits of HST astrometric observations were made between 2008 December and 2013 June. Every orbit contained several observations of the target and surrounding reference stars.

Note (1): High-resolution spectroscopic abundances and reddening estimates are from O'Malley+ (2017ApJ...838...90O). The reddening estimates are based upon the strength of the interstellar NaI line in the high-resolution spectra of the target stars. See section 3. Note (2): Uncertainty is the same as the VMag values. Note (3): Based upon the abundance of calcium, an α-capture element.
