Betsy Russell Baker (August 20, 1842- October 24, 1955) of the United States was listed in the first Guinness Book of Records as possibly the world's oldest person (though this was not confirmed by researchers until 2002). She died a few months after her 113th birthday, having been only the second person to do so, the first being Delina Filkins in 1928. She lived for 113 years and 65 days. While she was born in Great Britain, she was an immigrant to the U.S. at age 4 and she died in Tecumseh, Nebraska. She still holds the record of being the oldest person to die in Nebraska (Clara Huhn, born in Nebraska, died in California in 2000, aged 113 years and 327 days).
