Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy's Secretary was named Lincoln.
John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
Removed the two sets immediately above because:
"I found a couple factual errors, but overall, I'd say this is all pretty freaking creepy...
From what I could find, a search of Abraham Lincoln's secretaries brought up John Hay and John Nicolay, and I couldn't find any mention of a secretary named Kennedy."
Also, when googling "John Wilkes Booth's Birthday", it came up as May 10th 1838, not 1839.
A lot of coincidences of course. I mean, my first, middle and last name add to 15 letters too!!
Still rather eerie, indeed.
