  1. Don’t know the answers to #1 or 2, but…
    #3. John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe all died on July 4, which is really remarkable! Adams and Jefferson both died on the same day only hours apart!
    #4. JFK was survived by both of his parents, as he was still young when he was assassinated.
    #5. Theodore Roosevelt’s wife and mother both died on the same day.

    • Great job- 3- Adams and Jefferson dies on the same day 50 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence–i think it was 5 years later on July 4- Monroe dies….. 4- JFK- Old Joe had suffered a stroke the year before the assassination but lived until the late 60’s- and Rose died in 1995 at 104… A young TR lost both his mother and wife on the same day- and felt that the light had gone out of his life forever.

  2. I knew 2 of 3 on number 3…I didn’t know about Monroe. I remembered Adams and Jefferson died the same day…what are the odds?

  3. Answers to #1 and #2. #1. Zachary Taylor- Taylor a military man didn’t want his daughter marrying a military man- but against his wishes his daughter Knox married in 1835- they both came down with yellow fever and while Jeff Davis survived Knox died just three months after the wedding. Taylor would later say that Knox was a better judge of the man than he was. …. #2 Silent Cal Coolidge was the POTUS born on the 4th of July.
