John Tyler A Prolific President Indeed (b. 1790 d. 1862)
While most U.S. presidents become associated with important legislation or significant policies, what stands out for former President John Tyler, America’s 10th commander in chief, is his impressive lineage.
It turns out two of Tyler’s grandsons -- yes grandsons -- are still alive.
The men, Lyon Gardiner Tyler Jr., born in 1924, and Harrison Ruffin Tyler, born in 1928, are the sons of Lyon Gardiner Tyler, one of President Tyler’s 15 children.
