Guess #1:

It was thought they all had mixed-race offspring

My bad (sort of) William Clark blongs on the list instead of William Lewis.

I am sure he was a blonger but the above post should read belongs on the list. I may pass on my third beer.

"blong" What a cool word.

What should it mean? This is more fun than a Felix riddle.

How about, "Until he went to his third Grateful Dead show, Zonker really didn't feel he blonged to the Haight Ashbury Huka Fellowship..."

Thanks Felix for posting this!
Ideas for possible answers seem to be rather limited so far.

If you want a hint:

Would Bart Simpson be able to join the list?

Would Roger de Quincy, 2nd Earl of Winchester, also make the list?

Maurlin has added a correct member to the group. Well done!

Their last names are also the names of forts?

They have no male offspring.

And where did a word like "offspring" come from.

Is "blong" the sound made when a child springs off?

Larry David!

Larry David could indeed join the group,

Who can find another member (there are probably only about another 10-15 'unique' members to find)

Oh, wait - How about Thomas Jefferson?

Thought of maybe the most unique one but that would give it away.

Thomas Jefferson is both a surprise choice --and an excellent one. Rather counter-intuitive though...

Okay, how about Supreme Court Justice Peter Birchard?

Oh please give us "without a clue" people a tiny tiny hint...like if we are looking at just the names or the person or something? Clearly some know the answer and are just having fun finding ones while we suffer!!!

I believe another member of the group would be Saddam Hussein...

No group would be complete without a Stooge: Moe Howard!

Now what could Saddam Hussein POSSIBLY have in common with Bart Simpson and Scott Fitzgerald?

Oh just tell them, Felix can start another one now. Their last names are all US President's middle names.

That was pretty good, F.

This was an idea from one of the sharper players. I cannot take the credit for a darn good quiz.

Sorry to be so late on this one, but since I can't think of anyone who goes by the last name of S, can I humbly submit Bobby Van?
