222 years ago, the namesake of the city of Tyler, John Tyler, was born. In 1841, he became our 10th President. Tyler was a full 19 years older than Abraham Lincoln.

Yet, two grandchildren of John Tyler are still living today!!

John Tyler, and one of his sons, kept on fathering offspring well into their 70s, and this is what has led to this very improbable fact.

John Tyler was in his 70s as he was still fathering kids, and one of his sons did the same, having a couple of sons in the 1920s, and two of those, Harrison Ruffin and Lyon Gardinier Tyler, Jr, are in their 80s and still alive today.
