Good q's rusty. Don't think I knew any of em, but I like this stuff.
As far as Coolidge, my favorite anecdote is about "silent Cal". You've prob heard this...
Known for being less than talkative, someone told him that he, the someone, made a bet with a friend and could get Coolidge to say three words, to which Coolidge replied, "You lose!"

#4.... Tough, but I won't cheat.
Lets see, not a single term, not even 2 terms.
I wanna say all attended Yale, b/c  iirc Ford did, but so did W, so that's not it.
Several served in the military, but not all...
I'd say they were all born east of the Mississippi, but then there would be more...
Probably don't have the same # of letters in their names...
Most aren't on money...
Too ,any for mt Rushmore...
Hmmm, something they DID?!?! As in a post they held or an act they performed?
Still thinking buti don't mind if you issue a spoiler.

My Guess would be Virginia and Ohio.
“My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together.

“However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”

Should have made it "Could have been declared a sworn enemy of the U.S." The list would be a lot longer.

Agreed on that Alan, but this former president was.

Once again OC got it. 
He was from the south and after his presidency he went home ran for office in the Confederate Congress, won and did what he could to help defeat the union, therefore the desclaration against him, which was overlook after his death Jan. 18, 1862.
