That John F. Kennedy had affairs while he was President is fairly well known, so perhaps it should not be too surprising that the estate of one of the women alleged to have been involved in one of those affairs is following up on rumors that she had JFK’s child.
The administrator of the estate of Alicia Corning Clark recently revealed that the estate had filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the FBI seeking any information the FBI had on an affair between Clark and President John F. Kennedy. Rumors about an affair between the socialite and the President had been around for a long time.
In fact, a book by Seymour Hersh revealed that J. Edgar Hoover knew about the affair and about a court case involving allegations regarding the affair. The book also alleged that political operatives attempted to sell information about the affair and about how Clark had gotten pregnant to Republicans before the 1960 Presidential election.
It turns out there was a court case, which has recently been unsealed, according to DNAinfo in “Lawyers for Socialite’s $17.5M Estate on Hunt for Possible JFK Love Child.”
The court case was a lawsuit brought by Clark’s attorney against her for unpaid legal bills and included accusations that she wanted to extort money from JFK’s father to buy her silence about the affair.
That a child resulted from the affair seems like a dubious claim as Clark did not mention one in her will. The estate administrators, however, do have a duty to follow up on the rumors, especially since she had no other children.
If a child was born from the affair, then that child must be given a fair opportunity to contest Alicia Corning Clark’s will.

“On the threshold of retirement, we finally decided to quit thinking we could self-prepare the requisite documents. We had previously had only a very simple will. We needed the necessary legal (including updated will) & health care docs but didn’t want to deal with the time & complication of legalese. Cindy made the process relatively painless. She took the time to explain and answer questions without trying to upsell services. We were done in 2 meetings plus the reading of emailed drafts. In addition to preparing the documents, Nelson Eldercare will be there when our adult children need advice on executing the plans we’ve put in place.So glad it’s behind us and would recommend Cindy and her helpful staff.”
Cindy and her company treat their clients like family. Nelson’s offers clear, direct, and honest guidance in planning for your families security and future. No one wants to actively sit down and make these decisions, but Nelson’s makes this process seamless. I was so impressed with their willingness to answer all questions big or small. So glad I made the decision have them help my mom and dad and now me. You can’t go wrong with Nelson’s Elder Care Law.

I heard Cindy’s presentation at a Senior Luncheon at my church, and was very impressed. She helped my daughter and me understand many aspects of elder law. Josh has also been very helpful in my planning to enter an independent living situation . I have told many friends about them.
