Robert Lincoln Edwin Booth — Robert was the only son of Abraham Lincoln to survive till adulthood and have children. He almost didn’t though. While on a train platform in Jersey City in late 1863 or early 1864, he was pushed by the crowd and likely would have fallen to his death but for a passerby who grabbed him at the last moment. The passerby? He was Edwin Booth, the noted actor and brother of John Wilkes Booth.
