Right on, Rob! Good memory!

Thanks Roger, although half the time I can't remember where I put my glasses.

Best
Rob

Maybe Charles Francis Adams?


RE: Who Said This? - RJNorton - 12-20-2020 05:50 AM

Wonderful guess, Roger, but Rob already got it. Please see his post here:

Who said this?

"Just before my birth my mother had them remove her into the log part of the house. She wanted me to be born in a log house. She had read the life of Lincoln. So I got the log house end of it OK. All I need now is the other qualifications."

No idea...wild guess... Amelia Earhart?


RE: Who Said This? - AussieMick - 02-27-2021 06:35 PM

Gene, was he/she American?


RE: Who Said This? - Eva Elisabeth - 02-28-2021 03:41 AM

Was it another US president? (I think there were two, three others born in a log house.)


RE: Who Said This? - Gene C - 02-28-2021 01:51 PM

All good guesses.

It was not Earhart
Is/was an American
Not another US President

This person is/was a successful star of film and stage.


RE: Who Said This? - Eva Elisabeth - 02-28-2021 01:52 PM

Any politician? Or a writer?


RE: Who Said This? - RJNorton - 02-28-2021 02:03 PM

D.W. Griffith?


RE: Who Said This? - Gene C - 02-28-2021 03:32 PM

Yes, Eva.
This person had a very popular newspaper column and also ran for President of the United States.

Not D W Griffin, but our mystery person was in three movies directed by John Ford


RE: Who Said This? - RJNorton - 02-28-2021 04:24 PM

John Wayne?


RE: Who Said This? - Rogerm - 02-28-2021 05:08 PM

Was it Will Rogers?
