On a mailing list a couple weeks ago, we were discussing who had famous relatives. I brought up my questionable oneworldtree genealogy of course.
In the past day a couple newcomers added to the thread. One said he was related through marriage to Mary Todd Lincoln.
I thought about the obvious joke “You’re married to Mary Todd Lincoln?”
But came up with a better response.
“Through marriage I’m related to Jesus. My second cousin, once removed, is a nun.”
Well, she is.
