You may have read about the similarities between the two assassination, here they are, with my comments:

1) Lincoln was elected in 1860, Kennedy in 1960, 100 years apart
True. High probability of it happening, cos the election only happens once in 4 years. And since they were elected to Congress in 1846 and in 1946 respectively, also a hundred years apart.

2) Both men were deeply involved in civil rights for African Americans.
Not accurate. Lincoln once stated: I have no purpose, directly or indirectly to interfere with the institutions of slavery in the United States where it exists. As for Kennedy, he promoted civil rights only after some racial incidents.

3) Both men were assassinated on a Friday, in the presence of their wives.
High probability of it happening. Almost all public functions (where it provides an opportunity for assassination) occurred on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

4) Each wife had lost a child while living at the White House.
True but not accurate. Kennedy lost a premature baby, while Lincoln's eleven years old died of Typhoid.

5) Both men were killed by a bullet that entered the head from behind.
True. But its either the head or heart for instant death.

6) Lincoln was killed in Ford's Theater. Kennedy met his death while riding in a Lincoln convertible made by the Ford Motor Company.

7) Both men were succeeded by vice-presidents named Johnson who were southern Democrats and former senators.
True. But Johnson is a common name at that time. And one of them was born in the north, but lived in the south many years later.

8) Andrew Johnson was born in 1808. Lyndon Johnson was born in 1908, exactly one hundred years later.
True. But why is the number 100 considered a coincidence?

9) The first name of Lincoln's private secretary was John, the last name of Kennedy's private secretary was Lincoln.
False. Lincoln never had a secretary named Kennedy. He had two male secretaries, one named John Hays and the other named John G. Nicolay.

10) John Wilkes Booth was born in 1839. Lee Harvey Oswald was born in 1939, one hundred years later.
False. John W. Booth was born in 1838.

11) Both assassins were Southerners who held extremist views.
Not accurate. John W. Booth was born in the south but lived most of his life in the north.

12) Both assassins were murdered before they could be brought to trial.
True. But KILLED is a better description than murdered.

13) Booth shot Lincoln in a theater and fled to a warehouse. Oswald shot Kennedy from a warehouse and fled to a theater.
Not accurate. Booth was in a theater (where plays are staged), while Oswald was caught in a cinema. Booth fled to a farm and was caught in a barn.

14) LlNCOLN and KENNEDY each has 7 letters.
So what? But their full names does not contain the same number of letters.

15) ANDREW JOHNSON and LYNDON JOHNSON each has 13 letters.
Not accurate, if you consider his full name as Lyndon Baines Johnson.

16) JOHN WlLKES BOOTH and LEE HARVEY OSWALD each has 15 letters.

17) A Lincoln staffer Miss Kennedy told him not to go to the Theater. A Kennedy staffer Miss Lincoln, told him not to go to Dallas.
Cant be proved. There are many versions to this, and I guess it was added on later.

Interesting? Let me list more eerie coincidence for you:

John F. Kennedy, and the number 6-

Dallas: 6 letters-
He was shot from the 6th floor-
Oswald: 6 letters-
He was shot on 11/22: 1+1+2+2=6-
Move each letter of the abbreviation FBI six places positionally to the right in the alphabet, and you get LHO; i.e. Lee Harvey Oswald-
Take the initials "J" and "B" from John Wilkes Booth's name, move them six places positionally to the right in the alphabet and you get "P" and "H". Kennedy died at Parkland Hospital.
