Robert Todd Lincoln (1843-1926)


Robert was the son of Mary and Abraham Lincoln, and was the only one of their children to reach adulthood. Robert witnessed the assassinations of three presidents--Lincoln, Garfield, and McKinley. Following McKinley's shooting, Robert later refused to attend any functions involving U.S. presidents out of concern that he brought bad luck to them.

Fun Fact: Robert attended the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. in 1922.

Next: James Rudolph Garfield (1865-1950)
