A cousin. Several times removed. From a part of the family that was slow to move west. From her Wikipedia bio:
Her mother's family, the Gilmans, were among the most prominent settlers of Exeter, New Hampshire. Sarah's great-grandfather, James Orne, was descended from the Orne family of Dover, New Hampshire, who were among the first settlers of Dover. The Jewetts had emigrated from Yorkshire to Boston in 1638 and later founded Rowley, Massachusetts. From there they moved on to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, just after the Revolutionary War.
My great-great-great-grandfather Joseph left New Hampshire and moved to Ohio. My great grandfather George Enoch moved from Des Moines to California.
That’s a cool thing to know. And a very odd piece of writing that I enjoyed.
I don’t know much about my family in America. One side were polish Jews that came here during some political unrest. The other side I don’t know but there is a website about my last name, maybe I’ll find something cool.
If you want a laugh watch this video, and read the 4th or 5th comment by Brent while listening as the bear charges. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AF0M4xDZIJ8
