Early in our relationship my Wife had told me that she was told that Ulysses S. Grant was a “cousin” of some kind. I never thought much of it, but eventually I got a copy of a letter her Grandmother wrote where she not only mentioned this, but stated the possible relationship: Grant’s father and a particular Grandfather of hers were “brothers.” Haven’t gotten farther than that, but an intriguing puzzle to follow no doubt. First cousin, four times removed or something like that? Yeah, it’s a stretch…
