    Paul McCartney is a supposibly a distant cousin of my deceased dad from what I've heard though I've never met him. My kids are straight down the line from some general who helped Washington sail across the Delaware.

    I'm a cousin several generations back of Samuel Morse... rather direct too as he was one of my great great great grandparent's (however far back) nephews.

    My family on that side was also some of the first to settle Boston in the 1600s, if that's any claim to fame.

    My grandfather invented the spork. I'm not kidding. And I think I'm related to the guy who discovered the circulation of blood.



    But the spork thing is a hell of a lot cooler. My grandmother still has the prototype thing he carved. :D
