Okay, maybe not one to be proud of but at least interesting.

I'm somehow related to Gotzum Borglum. He was the racist who carved the four faces on Mount Rushmore and didn't include any minorities.

Being half Ukrainian and the rest German and Irish, I tell most folks I come from a long line of Gypsies and Horse thieves. We are built for stealing chickens and running under fences with them in hand, as well as engaging in other acts of skullduggery.

I have not heard of any ancestors of historical note except possibly my Uncle Roy, who was arrested while being Santa Claus in Portage, WI. He had a wife and kids here in Wisconsin, left them and travelled with the carnivals across the U.S. and Mexico, then had another family in California which he also left. I have the original newspaper photo of him in his Santa suit behind bars.

My great-Grandfather, who shot half his hand off with a side by side shotgun while crossing a fence, apparently went to Alaska during the Gold Rush. He also served as the Sheriff in Buffalo New York, and we have a picture of him leaning against the wall of the jail in an old chair. My Grandfather had his old Colt .45 revolver in his jewelry store for protection, but, not surprisingly, we have never located it and assume that old Uncle Roy stole it.

That would be quite an honor...When J.C.Penney started out he tithed 10% of his earnings like normal Christians....
Later on he tithed 90% of his earnings, and kept the rest for his own purposes.

Incredible testament to faith, and blessings in prosperity.

I've never researched my family before the Civil War. I know my dad's side left North Georgia after that war. I believe the original Staton's settled in North Carolina from England.
My Great GrandPa was a deputy sheriff in the early 20th century. I had a Great Uncle KIA while on a bombing run over Berlin.

Andrew, we may be related! Family history goes that I too am related to Robert E. Lee as well as Gen. George Armstrong Custer.

Most folks wouldn't admit something like that, and they dang sure wouldn't put an exclamation on it. laugh
