Proud to have missed the duck call clue. Also, I was under the impression that Lyndon Johnson killed JFK. At least, that's what Oliver Stone told me.

Born one place. Moved. Lincoln was born in Kentucky, came from Illinois. I think he lived in Indiana at some point. Perry was from Louisiana but made a name for himself in Atlanta.
