Political Trivia – Presidential Last Names

Ok, here's another for you. Name all presidents that shared a last name. And for each pair, their relation, if any. Memory only – no searching!

Extra credit – name the first American born president (the first several were British citizens when they were first born).

    you left out Harrison:  William Henry and Benjamin

    • Duke Cox says:

      Benjamin Harrison doesn't ring a bell, Frank.

      • FrankUnderwood says:

        He was prez around the time of Grover Cleveland.  In fact, I think he was the one in between the two Cleveland adminstrations……his grandfather was Wm Henry Harrison who gave the infamous inaugural address in the snowstorm, caught a nasty cold, a died a few weeks later (Tippy Canoe and Tyler Too……Wm Henry was Tippy Canoe)

    Duke & Frank got the 5 pairs, although it's Tippecanoe, the site of a battle.

    But wrong on the first President born an American.
