Interesting and macabre at the same time

This site purports to tell you how many famous people you have outlived on any given day. Given my birthdate, the site informed me how at my exact age Elvis Presley had a bad day in Vegas and then did the final dance two years later.

This list is of famous people who died at 39.

Three names I did not realize died so young: Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Stonewall Jackson.

I always imagined Stonewall Jackson being so much older, like maybe in his fifties.
