Did you know that Middle names were extremnely rare before the 1800’s and therefore that ancestor you have with that Middle name probably didnt exist in their lifetimes. Many of us have ancestors with supposed middle names. These names more often than not were added by a well-meaning family historian trying to discern from all the Henry, Mary’s or Johns in the line, but are probably not true. As Middle names really didnt gain much traction until the 19th century.
So if that supposed middle name doesnt appear in a Will, death record, birth record, or marriage record, it probably did not exist save for an imaginative family geneologist romanticizing and fantacizing about their line, lol!
The use of Middle names was so unpopular that these president do have one:
Harry Truman had only an inital.
Theodore Roosevelt, William McKinley, Benjamin Harrison, Andrew Johnson, Abraham Lincoln, James Buchanan, Franklin Pierce, Millard Fillmore, Zachary Taylor, John Tyler, Andrew Jackson, James Monroe, James Madison, John Adams, and George Washington
