  • Not really, unless you consider John Dillinger as a step relative a good thing. I have knowledge of my step dad being a kid at the family reunion he attended in Indiana when the feds were there taking pictures. There is a picture somewhere but I don't own it.

    Rocky in Missouri ( unless the feds want this picture)

  • Forgot the real skeleton!
  • The outlaw Jesse James' full name was Jesse Woodson James.

    My mother was a Woodson and Jesse would have been my 5th cousin, once removed.

  • I just found out my great-great grandparents names and where they came from in Ireland and on what ship to NY in the 1800's. They came to America LEGALLY, and shortly after becoming United States citizens moved to Calumet, Michigan. My wife's family history shows her mother is related to Daniel Webster and also to the Dodge family. Her maiden name was Dodge.

  • All of our ancestors back then came to this country legally. By the Naturalization Act of 1790 they had to have been here two years before they could become citizens. I have the document where my Grandfather renounced the Prussian king and became a citizen. My Great Grandfather disappeared from records within four years of buying the farm in Iowa in 1846. I do not have any papers on him.

  • How in the world did you ever figure that out??
    1692 must have been a fun time in American History... Not.

  • Fun, interesting, aggravating, time consuming!

    My 7th Great Grandfather, Dr. John Woodson, came to Virginia in 1619 to administer to the British troops. He was killed in an Indian attack in 1644.

    That's my skeleton.

  • Yes it is a lot of fun my wife and I did three hard back book on our familys. One thing we found was one of my wife's family got killed on Christmas Eve back in the early 1900's in a horse and buggy accident He was drunk.
