Not to name drop but I am actually related to the two President Adams's too, via my 4th Great Grandmother Nancy (Adams) Fiske.
But since I've started name droping we are also related to Stephen A. Douglas of the "Lincoln - Douglas Debates", his mother was Sarah Fisk.
Isn't it neat when you learn you are somehow related to people you read about in school all those years ago. I bet I would have done a lot better and paid more attention had I known they were distant cousins.
