I wonder if President Taylor's grandchildren are still alive? They were born in the late 1920s

Napoleon died in 1821.

As an aside... I once was touring the Biltmore Estate in Ashville, NC, and saw a finely crafted games table for Chess. It was behind a rope so that visitors couldn't touch it. The plaque next to it said that the vessel that Bonaparte's HEART was placed in, rested on this chess table, briefly.

Tyler, not Taylor, and I believe one of them is. The other one died last year.

Also, I find that fascinating. What a look into the past; he was 80 there and lived to be almost a hundred. He'd be over 150 now, and he's describing Victorian times first-hand for us.

Сan you imagine, a person living today can say: "My grandfather was in the War of 1812"...
