Grover Cleveland

Grover Cleveland’s grandson, George Cleveland, is running for state senator in New Hampshire. How does Grover, born 169 years ago, have a 54 year-old grandson?

Family marriage to younger women helps explain why the
president, born in 1837, still has grandchildren living 169 years
later. President Grover Cleveland, at age 49, married a 21-year-old
woman in 1886 who had been his ward. Then, George’s father, Richard
Cleveland, in his mid-40s, married a much-younger woman who had taught
the children from Richard’s first marriage.

It’s always nice to have a reason to think about Grover Cleveland. Cleveland actually believed in the importance of this interesting document called the Constitution.
