Sad News: One of President John Tyler’s Grandsons Has Died

, ,

John Tyler (1790-1862), President of the United States, 1841-1845, served in the Congress of the Confederacy, 1861-1862.

Mental Floss:

Lyon Gardiner Tyler, Jr., one of the two surviving grandchildren of President John Tyler, passed away on September 26, 2020, at age 95. His death occurred 175 years after his grandfather left the White House in 1845.

If you know one fact about the 10th President of the United States, it’s likely that his grandchildren have survived well into the 21st century. This was a result of the Tyler men fathering children late in life.
