Mother of presidents

Presidential Resting Places: Only 3 sites have the remains of 2 presidents: 1 at Quincy, Mass., 1 at Arlington, & 1 in this state capital

Even if you didn't know the answer (and I didn't), I'd have thought Richmond (Virginia! Mother of presidents!) the first guess. But I was wrong.

Guesses were Albany, Boston, and Columbus .... What? Ohio is "mother of presidents" too? Huh. Who knew?

But Richmond is still the right answer.

Residing in a media market that includes a sliver of Ohio, I admit that Columbus crossed my mind, as not a few Presidents were born in the Buckeye State -- Grant, Hayes, Garfield, B. Harrison, McKinley, Taft & Harding -- while W.H. Harrison, although born in VA., moved to Ohio.
But yes, "What is Richmond?" was my other choice for Final Jeopardy! tonight.
