Just for further clarification, I must say the following:
The Samuel Adams, "Fire brand" of the American Revolution, aka Father of the American Revolution, was also the Governor of Massachusetts from 1793-1797. His Great Grandfather was Joseph Adams, who was a brother of my 8th Great Grandfather, Captain Samuel Adams. The Great Grandfather of our 2nd President, John Adams, is also Joseph Adams, making him and "Father of the American Revolution" Samuel Adams, 2nd cousins. Both are 3rd cousins, 7 times removed, to me. The Father of the American Revolution is among those with his signature upon the Declaration of Independence.

God Bless the United States of America.
