Daniel Fredric Bakeman & Susan Bakeman were married on 29th August 1772. Daniel was only 12-years old & Susan was 14-years then. This happy marriage lasted more than 91 years & ended when Susan died and this sad thing happened when she was 105 years — 10th September 1863.
Now Bakeman’s marriage is recorded as the longest and also the only marriage for surpassing 90-years. Susan and Daniel together had 8 children and apart from setting this record, Daniel also held a record of “last-surviving veteran” of American Revolutionary war. He died at the age of 109 on 5th April 1869.
