My 5th cousin 8x removed is President Zachary Taylor, according to We’re Related.

My ancestral line:

Thomas Pierce
John Pierce
Anne Alice Pierce
Ann Bennett
John Bell
Mary Kesiah Bell
Jeremiah Isaac Meadows
Philip Meadows
Elizabeth Meadows
Martha Jane Dix / Dick
John Eldridge Richmond
William Hunter Richmond Sr.
William Hunter Richmond Jr.
Mom
Me

I can confirm this line through Philip Meadows, so there are seven generations beyond him that need to be researched. This is also the line that Elvis supposedly comes through, stopping at Jeremiah Isaac Meadows.

President Taylor’s ancestral line:

Thomas Pierce
Elizabeth Pierce
Samuel Bayley
Samuel Bailey
Sarah Bayly
Sarah Dabney Strother
President Z. Taylor

I know that the presidential families have been researched at great lengths. I do have the book on presidential genealogy that will need to be consulted.
