Famous Americans Related to our Family
Assembled by D. A. Sharpe
Various names in American History crop up in our memories of people who’ve had some fame or influence in one aspect or another. The purpose of this page is to cite some people who were related to our family, in a genealogical sense.
We do have 17 U.S. Presidents and seven Vice Presidents related to our family, but they are cited on the Presidential Chart
Most of these non-Presidential ancestors are positive, but not all are without fault or even negative image. It brings a sense of appreciation about our family heritage to realize the presence of family members who’ve accomplished degrees of fame. They each do have a degree of fame, and the stories about such fame is shared here with you, hoping you’ll enjoy browsing these people. There is no significance assumed to the order in which they are listed.
