Fact of the Day: President Grandfather

President John Tyler had many children during the course of his life. He had a son named Lyon when he was 63 years old. Lyon had two sons while he was in his 70s, and both of the brothers are still alive. Making Tyler the oldest president with living grand-children.

This is mind-boggling. Just trying to wrap my head around the fact that John Tyler's grandchildren are still alive is blowing my mind. Wow.

it is pretty amazing, he was one of the first batch of people to be president. He was a good bit before Lincoln.
