An election year is a good time to dig out presidential trivia. These bits and pieces come from Island Magic Jewelry:

- James Buchanan, the 15th president, was the only bachelor president.- John Tyler, the 10th president, had the most children, 15. His last child was born when Tyler was 70.

- Five presidents were born in log cabins - Jackson, Fillmore, Buchanan, Lincoln and Garfield.

- John Adams lived the longest. He died in on July 4, 1826, five months before his 91st birthday. His last words: "Thomas Jefferson still lives." Remarkably, Jefferson died the very same day at age 83.
