Her eyes were blue and her hair exceptionally blonde, soft and light as a baby's. ---According to local tradition, she was one of the Virginia beauties adored by Gen. George Washington (1732-1799) in his early youth. To her legend also ascribes his schoolboy verses, ---and many have surmised that when in after years Washington so favored her son "Harry", it was because of his tender memories of the boy's mother.

    They may be, but we know for sure we are DIRECT decendants, not some offshoot, 13092 times removed. :lol:

    WOW, that's really cool. I wish I could know my family history back that far. The farthest my aunt ever got was a few generations.

    Lee did quite a few things other than just being a general, after the war he founded and ran a college.

    That's pretty neat. I'm pretty sure that I have no famous (or infamous) ancestors to speak of.

    And if you're born in North America there's a good chance you have some Native American/First Nation/Indian blood in you. In my case, I'm at least 1/256 Kaskasian, stemming from my paternal grandmother's Acadian heritage. Then there's my Korean half... I'm curious how much Chinese and Japanese blood are in me and who I'm related to through all of that.

    In all seriousness though, I have almost absolute no clue concerning my ancestry, and really don't mind. I try not to make a big deal about who my ancestors were as it doesn't really affect my day-to-day living. That is unless the Japanese Gov't decides to give reparations to Koreans for past atrocities, or France decided to give a hand-out to all modern Acadians for Le Grand Dérangement, then we'll talk.

    One of my Mom's side ancestors, like 3 or 4 generations earlier, was the emporer of China's right hand man

    Our family lost all our riches because of damn communism, so I have absolutely nothing to show for it =(
