John Tyler, the tenth President of the United States has two grandson's alive today.
When I was ten, there was a grandmother living in our neighborhood who had memories of her family moving to Arizona when she was five, on a covered wagon. I talked to her about that some, but now wish I'd talked more and taken notes!
I recently learned that my grandmother, long ago passed away, as a young woman worked in a small town post office where the post master had been a prisoner at Andersonville. Seems odd I knew someone who knew someone in the civil war.
