There were two sets of father and son Presidents. George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush and John Adams and John Quincy Adams. When his son had won the white house John Adams wrote him a short note of congratulations it said: "No man who ever held the office of President would congratulate a friend on obtaining it."
John Adams, the second president, was the father of John Quincy Adams, the sixth president.
