I don't think I'm directly related to anyone (haven't checked yet, so it's possible, I suppose)..but...
George Washington's brother's wife's sister's husband, Reuben Lindsay, is my husband's 1st cousin 7x removed through their common ancestor Caleb Lindsay, which makes me connected to George Washington by 15 degrees. Whew! I just love the Connection Finder!
