> Mount Clay (Mount Reagan), not a president, 5533 feet
Henry Clay was a senator and Secretary of State in the 19th century. He ran for president three times and lost three times. In 2003, the New Hampshire state legislature changed the name of the mountain from Mount Clay to Mount Reagan, in honor of Ronald, the 40th president. The response from the United States Board of Geographic Names in 2010 basically said to New Hampshire, “No way, José. Ixnay on the ame-nay ange-chay.” The name officially remains Mount Clay.
After all that palaver and folderol, the Appalachian Mountain Club does not count Clay among its 4000-footers even though it measures 5533 feet. It is only 200 feet above the col (notch or saddle) between Clay and Washington and therefore, Clay is considered to be a secondary summit of Washington.
> Mount Franklin, not a president, 5003 feet
Mount Franklin at 5003 feet is considered to be a secondary summit of Mount Monroe.
Although we did have two presidents named — Franklin Pierce and Franklin Delano Roosevelt — this is neither of them.
> Mount Jackson, not a president, 4052 feet
Mount Jackson is another peak in the Presidentials named after someone who has the same surname as a president, #7 Andrew Jackson, but never was. Charles Thomas Jackson was a 19th century New Hampshire state geologist.
> Mount Webster, not a president, 3911 feet
