That would be quite an interesting research project as George had no natural children, he being the last of his direct-blood-line. Lots of recent politicians have relationship to him via marriages.

And Thomas Jefferson was widowed early and never remarried. He had two daughters, but for the rest of his life he was very close to a cousin, who was also his property - Sally Hemming

And SHE had 8 children, most of whom could and did "pass" Sally and her children were all freed before Jefferson lost his property in bankruptcy. Jefferson GAVE his library to the country... it was so extensive that it might have averted most of his financial woes had he sold it for even a modest part of its true worth.

Descendents of Jefferson denied the rumors until late last century when DNA testing proved it. Some of the surviving white relatives bowed graciously to science... others not.


The more one finds out about one's background... well we all seem to be both heroes and scoundrels in the same person.

Paula observing that mongrel humans are a good thing... look at a Persian cat... pure breeds like that proves we are too wierd to be trusted with creating a "superior variety"

If someone said they were George's descendant, that would be an interesting project because of the reason you stated.

However, being his cousin is not rare at all. My relationship to George is through his paternal grandmother. She and I have the same surname, and we share a known common ancestor. George is a very distant cousin, 13th or 14th a few times removed, if I remember correctly.
