Person-of-Mystery



Well, I'm almost ready for students on Monday, but I'm out camping with the Scouts again this weekend, so I cannot guarantee I'll have the ability to check in on the contest.  Good luck!

Who could I be?  That's the mystery!  Go ahead and take a guess and then go enjoy your day.  Check back tomorrow and I'll reveal the answer.  The first correct post will be declared the winner.

That is George Washington Parke Custis, the step-grandson of George Washington.

An interesting aside: John Tyler (1790-1862), the 10th president, has two living grandchildren.

For some perspective, Queen Elizabeth is the great-great granddaughter of Queen Victoria (1819-1901)

Good job Robert

The info about the grandchildren is a fascinating fun fact. Also interesting is that when I looked them up I ended up at Gardiners island, the first English settlement in NY and the only real estate in the US still held by a royal grant from the English Crown. Julia Gardiner, wife of John Tyler, was born on this island.
