Thank god Dennis Kucinich was not number 9!!!!
Virginia, with 8. Ohio is second with 7. The confusion is that Ohio tends to claim William Henry Harrison, who was born at Berkeley Plantation in Charles City County, Virginia. He didn't live in Ohio until after his marriage in 1795, when he was about 23 years old. He was also Governor of the Indiana Territory and lived there from around 1801 to 1812, so they may as well claim him too.|
