President John Tyler's grandsons

Part of our occasional series, Interesting but useless trivia. Trivia that is certainly interesting, but yeah, pretty useless in the grand scheme of things. Not likely to result in a promotion, raise, or your next big career move.

John Tyler (1790-1862), 10th president of the United States from 1841-1845, has two grandsons still living. How is this possible, you ask? The former president was 63 when he and second wife Julia, 30 years his junior, welcomed son Lyon into the world. In turn, Lyon was 72 and 75, respectively, when he and second wife Sue had sons Lyon Jr. and Harrison.
