This Revolutionary War veteran died in March 1868. When I was a child I knew a woman who was born in February 1869 and lived into her 90s (the mother of a friend of my grandmother’s)—she was born less than one year after this man’s death and when Lincoln would have been President if he had not been assassinated.
My great-grandmother was born in the centennial year of the republic, 1876, and lived until 1977...until I was sixteen years old. She was born the same year as Custer led his men to disaster at Little Big Horn. That always amazed me when I was growing up. Still does I guess.
