President John Tyler Has 2 Living Grandsons!
This is a post at Politico about 1 of President Tyler's grandsons calling Newt,"a jerk,"but that's not what caught my eye,but this:
President John Tyler, who lived from 1790-1862, had 15 children during his lifetime, making him the most prolific president. One of his children, Lyon Gardiner Tyler, born in 1853, fathered Lyon Gardiner Tyler, Jr. in 1924 and Harrison in 1928. Lyon Tyler, Jr., is 88 and currently living in Franklin, Tenn., according to Harrison.
Not great-grandsons,but grandsons mind you,from a man who was born in 1790.
