Oh, absolutely! smiley

You will definitely find this in rural areas, where it seemed that everyone was related to everyone else because they all married each others' cousins... wink

Makes it a pain if they all had children called John or Elizabeth in the same year (I've found families whose only goal in life seemed to be which could produce a John or Elizabeth first that year)

I do not know if ruled is the correct verb, but a town in PA was named after the Raub Family.  The family provided the boats that George Washington used to cross the Delaware River,

The name of the city is Raubsville.
