James Madison’s paternal grandmother’s brother’s grandson was 12th President Zachary Taylor. In the index of this book, President Taylor is only mentioned once on page 1. I would have thought they had more interaction, but maybe he was dead before Taylor’s term. I guess I’ll find out eventually.
Also, one of Madison’s cousins married Patrick Henry’s sister and three other cousins married kin of George Washington. Imagine the family reunions, if they had family reunions back then.
