Who died on this day 140 years ago?

...and don't just look it up on Google :*

and for a bonus question...who was born on this day 413 years earlier?

I'd say Abraham Lincoln. And I didn't Google.:rolleyes:

Gonna have to take a pass on the bonus round.

Funny thing is that I saw Goggle's banner for today earlier and thought " Oh it must be Leonardo's birthday". So i didn't actually Google the answer. :cool:

Well, it couldn't be Onan's girlfriend, could it? :(

(For the bonus question I mean't to say...) :O

If its the same person who died 140 years ago and was born 413 years earlier - it must be one of Methuselah's relations.:confused:

It is the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic if that helps?

Shame about the Pres, but that Leonardo couldn't act to save his life.

Tommy Cooper once joked: "I was in the dentist's waiting room today, reading the magazines. What a shame about the Titanic!"

Same dentist? :p
