LongeviQuest is delighted to announce the age validation of the world’s former world’s oldest living person and oldest undisputed man ever, Robert Alexander Early at 111 years old. He was an American supercentenarian who held these titles at the time of his death on 9 October 1960.

Robert Alexander Early was born in Watts Creek, Whitley County, Kentucky, USA, on 8 October 1849. He attended school in Williamsburg, and then started a decade-long teacher career after it.

In 1875, he married Eliza Ann Berry and had three children with her. In 1886, he was remarried to Sidney Ann King with whom he had six children with.

He was once a teacher, a mailer, a carpenter, a merchant, a carpenter, a Sunday-school superintendent, and a woodcarver. He spent his life with these professions in that specific order. Robert stopped woodcarving at 108 years old when his hands became too shaky.

Early passed away in Corbin, Whiley County, Kentucky, USA, on 9 October 1960, just a day after celebrating his 111th birthday.

It’s believed that Early was the world’s oldest living person from October 1959 until his own death one year later, and how he is the first man who reached the age of 111.
