John Scott Harrison

Biography:John Scott Harrison (1804-1878) was an American Congressman who represented the second district of Ohio from 1853 to 1857. To date, he is the only person in history who was the son of one President (William Henry Harrison) and the father of another (Benjamin Harrison).

John Scott was born to William Henry and Anna Symmes Harrison on October 4, 1804 at Vincennes, Indiana. He studied medicine, but became a farmer. He was elected to Congress in 1852 as a Whig and in 1854 as a Republican. When he was defeated in 1856 he retired to his farm in Hamilton County, Ohio.

Harrison died on May 25, 1878 at his home near North Bend, Ohio and was buried in the Harrison tomb there. His body was stolen from its grave, and was later discovered in the quarters of a medical student who lacked legitimate access to corpses for medical study.
