My mother's mother was a direct descendant of Commodore John Barry, the first flag officer of the US Navy.

Samuel Adams on my dad's side
Walter Darling, Civil War soldier who distinguised himself in battle primarily by dropping his rifle and running away, on my mom's side.

Daniel Boone was my uncle somewhere back along the line, or so I've been told.

I'm descended from a long line of unknown drunkards and ruffians - as most Irish are.

Actually, while my oldest was doing her "foreign" semester in London, she made quite a few visits to Ireland. She did some research and supposedly, my lineage on my Dad's side goes back to some low level noble in County Cork...

My great-great-great-(Maybe one more great) grandmother was a prostitute with a drug habit. Which explains all my cousins.

Under the terms of my agreement with the Marshall Service, I am afraid I can't answer this question.
