And a younger brother survives!
Lyon was born in Richmond, Va., to Lyon Gardiner Tyler Sr. and Susan Ruffin Tyler on January 3, 1925, and lived his youth in Charles City County, Va., and grandson of 10th U.S. President John Tyler.
How’s tipicanoo doing?
This old timer was still around in the 1950s -
“Last Witness to President Abraham Lincoln Assassination - I’ve Got A Secret”
I remember reading about the grandsons a few years ago and wondered if they were still around.
So how old is John Tyler’s younger brother now?
Ha! I meant this guy’s younger brother.
U.S. Constitution became effective March 4, 1789.
John Tyler was born March 29, 1790.
Some old lions continue to reproduce well into old age, especially the rich and powerful ones. Young fecund females are very smart and make rational decisions. The young male lions are not suitable to father lion cubs. The lionesses know better.
I was honestly surprised he was still alive as long as I’ve seen this story pop up.
Harrison Ruffin Tyler was born in 1928 so he’d be about 92.

Is it someone important?
They had longer attention spans back then.
His grandfather is.
Building an army of Cliff Clavins, one postman at a time!
What a COUNTRY!
His untimely death kicked off what eventually became known as the "Curse of Tippecanoe" so named because every chief executive elected in a year ending in zero wound up expiring before leaving the Oval Office.
The "curse" was finally broken when Ronald Reagan survived an assassination attempt by John Hinckley early in his 1st term.
I believe you’re right. Instant gratification wasn’t so common back then...
