    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.
