President John Tyler (born in 1790) has two living grandsons

cut to the chase:

Here's how it happened. John Tyler became president in 1841. He had eight children with his first wife, who died while he was in office. At 52, he married 22-year-old Julia Gardiner. They had seven children, for a total of 15 -- the most of any president. He was 63 when son Lyon Tyler was born, whose first wife also died. Lyon also had a very young second wife, and was 75 years old when Harrison Tyler was born in 1928.

that's pretty amazing... and a little weird...

Per my father, my paternal grandfather was born in the late 1860's/early 1870's. I used to think that was impressive, but it is more than 70 years after Pres Tyler's date of birth!

In 1955, when I was 5 years old, I had a neighbor who was 100. He was born in 1855. So, when he was 5, he must have known people who were alive at the birth of the nation. It boggles my mind.
