    John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
    Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
    ]

    John Wilkes Booth was born in 1838, not 1839.

    Presidential and congressional elections occur at regular intervals, so that sort of coincidence should be fairly common.

    I received that ages ago, but they seem to have changed it a bit since then, to make it a little less...crude

    A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.
    A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.

    I did read that any president who got elected in a year divisible by 40 got assassinated.

    "plagiarist git" you mean

    But Miles does have a point, there must be zillions of facts about each person, so quite a few will be shared with everyone else. And Miles repped me so he's great!! :rolleyes:

    The coincidences are easily explained as the simple product of mere chance. It's not difficult to find patterns and similarities between any two marginally-related sets of data, and coincidences similar in number and kind can be (and have been) found between many different pairs of Presidents.
    I think there was a discussion about how Colin Powell and George Bush both have ancestors in the British royal family.
