Once you start documenting a connection to one “famous” person, it seems like you can’t stop until you’ve gotten all of them done. My grandmother used to say we “came over on the Mayflower”. I really didn’t believe it was the actual Mayflower but research has proven Grandma right!
The only President of the United States she had heard of us being connected to was Millard Fillmore. Grandma would be surprised to know we are related to so many others – no matter how distantly!
So now for the big reveal – Franklin Delano Roosevelt is also a descendant of John Howland of the Mayflower!
Here is how FDR is my 7th cousin 4x removed.
