I am related to Sam Bass and John Alden, (not the outlaw, but one of the first settlers that came over on the Mayflower). Also to John Quincy Adams and A relative married into George Washington's family. Some of the Yates are pretty famous back in the days of martyrdom with the Christians. Their houses were used to hide some of the Jesuit priests. There have been some documentaries done on them. It's been fascinating finding out these things about my family. One of my relatives on the Yates side has uncovered quite a few famous folks.

There weren't any famous soldiers, but many of my family served in the Civil War. I am planning on creating a book about these heroes. Regardless of which side they fought on, they fought for what they believed in. To this day, my family serves in the military and I'm quite proud of them.
