NFT: I just learned something amazing

BlackLight : 1/10/2018 11:20 pm
John Tyler, tenth President of the United States, was born in 1790. He has two LIVING grandchildren.

Their father (John Tyler's son) was eight years old when the Civil War started.
That is amazing

228 year span. It is only possible if you have a series of dirty old men who father kids late in life
It's a generational thing.

John Tyler had a son at age 63. And his son had one son at 71, and the other at age 75. One is in his 90s. The other will turn 90 later this year.

Aside from long underwear, I don't think many of those habits have changed for most people.
This was brought up a few

weeks back. I couldn't believe it and "researched" it. It is true and yes by having grandfather and father have kids while they were in their seventies plus their own extremely long lives it makes for a very interesting point of fact. Tyler was born during Washington's presidency. So a living "link" to the 1st president...
Are they protected by the Secret Service?

Or at least was still last spring - Irene Triplett's father was a Civil War veteran. She was born in 1930 when her father was 84 years old. She is the last remaining recipient of a Civil War pension.
