James Buchanan, the 15th President of the United States, 9th cousin 8x removed

James Buchanan, the 15th President of the United States in my 9th cousin 8x removed. That ancestor who connects both of us together as relatives is Joan de Beaufort Plantagenet HRH Queen Consort, Princess of England of Scots (1404 – 1445), my 16th great grandmother.

James Buchanan Jr. was born on April 23, 1791 and died on June 1, 1868. He was the 15th president of the United States from 1857 to 1861, serving instantly prior to the American Civil War. He was a member of the Democratic Party and the 17th Secretary of State, and he had served in the Senate and House of Representatives before becoming president.
