This topic is not supercentenarian but it is about longevity so i thought it is related.

What is the oldest age a person has reached and both the parents are still living?
I know for single parent, the daughters of Sarah Knauss and Bettie Wilson are about 96, 95 years oldest respectively when their mothers still living.

The oldest person i can think of for this topic is Prince Charles of Wales, who is 63 years old. His parents Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip still living.

Does anyone know of oldest cases?

Did a quick Google search about Michael Douglas and he's older than your example. :)

Michael Douglas is 68 and both his parents are still alive. Kirk Douglas is 95 and Diana Dill is 89.

I would think that the correct answer to this would probably be around age 85.

In fact we can check the longest marriages and the couples' children, I thank it is not hard to find children in their 80s whose parents were/are still with him/her.

Good point, vic726.

If some of us remembers, this couple was married for 86 years in early 2011:

http://www.aarp.org/relationships/love- ... riage.html

They had 5 children -- guessing one of them were still living. Unfortunately the man died right after that article (in February 2011).

Yes, his obituary shows that 4 of 5 children were living:

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/newber ... =149073854

The 1940 Census showed this family:

http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse. ... =151652765

Hubert Fisher 32
Zelb Fisher 30
Alice Fisher 15
Franklin Fisher 14
Norma Fisher 7
Herbert Fisher 5
Ludie Fisher 2
Ludie Idlett 48

It looks like the oldest, Alice, was the only one deceased out of 5. But we have Franklin Fisher who would be born sometime 1925/1926, and he was still living when his dad died. He would be about 85.

This is great to have both your parents still living, if you are already in your 60's!

Thanks :)
And I do think that ~85 is almost the limitation for this record...

Lowell Carroll from Bloomfield in Iowa, USA, was 79 when his father passed away in March 1994, aged 100 years. When his mother passed away (in 2007, at 112!) Lowell was 93 years old and resided in a nursing home together with his 90-year-old wife.

According to a member of the family, Lowell and his wife moved into a nursing home when they were 92 and 89 and it worried his mother a lot that the two of them had began to suffer from the effects of old age. Lowell struggled with emphysema and his wife had Parksinsons disease and poor eyesight.

Lowell Carroll finally died at age 95, while his 3 brothers died aged 92, 74 and 19.

An inverse question, when oldest supercentenarian who has two or more biological children died, all his (her) children still alive ? Sarah Knauss is excluded because she only has a daughter name Kathryn Knauss (1903-2005)

Would be interesting to see the ages of any children Karam (M) and Katari (F) Chand aged 107 and 100 respectively, from Bradford in England may have.

They are on track to celebrate their 88th anniversary on 28 Jan 13 - and with (apparently) 8 children the prospect of some of them being on their 80s may be high

This case sounds suspicious. They married when the woman was 12? :blink:

It appears so based on all the information provided.

Whilst potentially suspicious - having regard to the advised wedding period (1925) and also their shared culture - marriage at the age of 12 certainly was not unheard of at that time.

The longest recorded marriage (just over 91 years) was from the USA and had a 12 year old groom and 14 year old bride - with the wedding about 240 years ago.

Details are

Karam Chand 10 November 1905
Kartari Chand[1] 1 November 1912

6 January 1925

87 years, 342 days



Daniel Frederick Bakeman 9 October 1759 – 5 April 1869
Susan (née Brewer) Bakeman 2 January 1758 – 10 September 1863

29 August 1772

91 years, 12 days
