^^^Tyler's son was 8 years old with the Civil War started. His children are alive today. So their dad was 8 years old when the war started.
That's right, I'm stupid. Not sure what I was thinking...
My grandfather was born 2 years before the outbreak of WW2. Their grandfather was born 7 years after the conclusion of the American Revolution. Only 147 years in between those dates.
