Grand Trivia Question #11 (Answered by Jane)

The Sons-in-Law
In 1924 Al Smith deadlocked for the Democratic nomination for President with the son-in-law of an American President. A third dark horse candidate got the nomination but Republican Calvin Coolidge got the Presidency. Who was the son-in-law candidate and who was his father-in-law President? Bonus: Who is the only son-in-law of a President to actually succeed in becoming an American President?

Ah, Jane (again!!) has searched out the answers:

William McAdoo (above) was the son-in-law of

Rome's favorite son, Woodrow Wilson.

Bonus:
As indicated in an earlier post --

Jefferson Davis (above) was the son-in-law of

Zachary Taylor (Second cousin of both Jane and the Great Triviator)
