ABRAHAM LINCOLN - President of the United States

Thomas "Tad" Lincoln

"Tad" Lincoln was the youngest of President Lincoln's four sons, and was named after his grandfather, Thomas Lincoln. Tad was very much a prankster at the White House, as his parents were unwilling to discipline him after the death of Willie. He outlived his father by only a few years, dying of a respiratory illness in Chicago at the age of eighteen.

Only one of Lincoln's children survived to adulthood; Robert Todd Lincoln, who was present at his father's death, and went on to have a distinguished career as United States Ambassador, and was buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
