I've got two cousins who have researched my dad's side of the family extensively. Nobody famous, except for one cousin who married General Nathaniel Greene. Dad's family is pre-Revolutionary War, originally Huguenots who moved to the netherlands and then on to America. Among the very first settlers of Ohio with an uncle coming into the Athens area of Ohio in approximately 1795. Mom's family is pre-Civil War Pennsylvania Dutch based on what limited research was done on that side. Again, nobody famous on that side either. both sides are pretty much populated with farmers, merchants, teachers and miners.
