Warren G. Harding body exhumed, memorial where they have lain since 1927.
The grandson of President Warren G. Harding and his lover, Nan Britton, went to court to try to get the Republican’s remains exhumed from the presidential memorial where they have lain since 1927.
Mr Harding’s legal heirs oppose the move.
They say they have already accepted DNA evidence that Mr Blaesing’s mother, Elizabeth Ann Blaesing, was the daughter of the 29th US president and Nan Britton.
Mr Harding’s extramarital affair with Ms Britton came to light after his death while in office in 1923.
The dispute looms as benefactors prepare to mark the centennial of Mr Harding’s 1920 election with site upgrades and a new presidential centre in his hometown of Marion, Ohio.
Mr Blaesing has reportedly said he deserves to “have his story, his mother’s story and his grandmother’s story included within the hallowed halls and museums in this town”.
