    Conrad Heyer, veteran of the American Revolution, age 103, born 1749. EARLIEST BORN HUMAN ever to be photographed. Thought to have been taken in 1852.

    Conrad Heyer was born in 1749 and he holds a unique place in American history. That's because he was photographed when he was 103 years old. So that gives him the distinct honor of being earliest born human being ever photographed (until another old photo is discovered).
