My grandfather was born before 1850 (1842). I presume not unheard of but how rare is it.

My late half-aunt's paternal grandfather was born 100 years before she was (1834 vs. 1934).

Both my grandfathers were in the 1890's so not even in your ball-park smiley

You have me beat ... mine was born in 1860. By your profile, you were born in the decade before me.

That's amazing -- did you know your grandfather at all?  My grandfathers were born in 1879 and 1881.  One of my husband's grandfathers was born in 1864.

One of those grandsons died last month, unfortunately.
