Zachary Taylor the 12th President of the United States,10th cousin 3x removed

President Zachary Taylor is my 10th cousin 3x removed. The ancestor on my genealogical chart who connects us together is Edward NEVILLE, Baron Bergavenny (1412 – 1476), my 12th great grandfather.

Zachary Taylor was born on November 24, 1784 and died on July 9, 1850. He was the 12th president associated with the United States, serving from March 1849 until his death in July 1850. Taylor previously was a lifetime career officer in the United States Army, rose to your rank of major general and became a national hero due to his victories when you look at the Mexican–American War. As a result, he won election towards the White House despite his vague political beliefs. His top priority as president was preserving the Union, but he died sixteen months into his term, prior to making any progress regarding the status of slavery, which was in fact inflaming tensions in Congress.
