This kid’s father was named after Joe Kennedy Jr. (JFK’s brother who died young).
Wouldn’t that make his dad Joe III?
Wouldn’t that make this candidate (the fourth Joe Kennedy in the family) Joe Kennedy IV?
You would think so. Acc. to Wikipedia (who knows if this is true):
Joseph Patrick Kennedy “Sr”—the patriarch
“ “ “ “Jr.”—the son who died in the war.
” “ “ “II”—son of RFK, former US congressman. Technically he would be III, wouldn’t he?
And this one is “III” but really should be “IV”. From what I can gather all of the Joes have Patrick for a middle name.
But Joe II is not the son of “Joe Jr”, he’s the son of
RFK. Maybe that is why this is?
For the record THIS Kennedy is a twin, born in 1980; his
brother is Matthew Rauch Kennedy. Joe II’s first wife
was Sheila Rauch...they got the marriage annulled. (Or at
least HE did.)
Sorry, I can't add "Can't Count" to my list of Kennedy shortcomings in my tagline. Not enough room.
And Massachusetts swaps a turd burglar for Joe Kennedy III pronounced: "da Turd."
