Pssht. My maternal grandmother was born in 1882. She died in 1993.

President Tyler was seventy something when the father of the man in the article was born.

That's quite a man. Wonder if the dna has been checked in case it was really the butler?

Early Hugh Hefner. Or Jerry Lee Lewis who married his 13 year old cousin.

I have actually given this some thought. My Dad was 55 when he had his last son; his wife was 41. At almost 57, I'm not interested in having any more children though. Although, I do very much still like to "practice".
