I Am Not a Crook

Sometimes you discover that you're related to people you'd rather not be related to. Here's a valid relationship between me and Richard Nixon.

Deborah Lockwood and her husband William Ward are my great9 grandparents. Deborah was born in Watertown Massachusetts in 1636 [see The Hanging of Goodwife Knapp in 1653]. William Ward was born in Fairfield Connecticut in 1631. Deborah's mother was Susanna Norman. There must be a million descendants of the Norman, Ward and Lockwood families. They're all related to Richard Nixon so I'm in good company.

  2. Send me the names and birth dates of your grandparent and great-grandparents and I'll post a list of people you are related to.

    I guarantee that you'll be impressed! (and I'll have a rich source of future postings)

    Come on, I double-dare you! :-)

    Ask your grandparents?

  5. I like how Richard's mother, Hanna Millhouse, is listed without a date of death.

    She lives on, reminding us all of the dangers of high political office!
