Apparently I am 12 degrees, 6x removed. If you are related to the Griffins, you are related to a LOT of presidents.

Funny to discover today - my husband is descended from the Ball line which we have known for years, (Georgeʻs mother) and in 2015 that was the connection made on WikiTree. Now, as our trees build out, in 2021, he is more closely connected to George through one of my lines.

16 degrees for me. Fourth cousin seven times removed. We're descended from his third great grandfather, Lawrence Washington, and my ancestors came to Virginia via Barbados in the mid -1600s.
