The fine gentleman above is Conrad Heyer, taken ca. 1852. He was appx. 103 when photographed, having been born in 1749. He was reportedly the first white child born in Waldoboro, Maine, then a German immigrant community. He served in the Continental Army under George Washington during the Revolutionary War, crossing the Delaware with him & fighting in other major battles. He eventually bought a farm & retired to Waldoboro, where he happily regaled visitors with tales until his death.
