  • 1. FROM: accordance with Federal Laws provided For Educational and Information Purposes – i.e. of PUBLIC InterestIs Presidency in Obamas Genes?People to Know | Politics and Government08/20/2008Barack Obama may be too busy for a family reunion this summer, but from what genealogists have found, it would bea doozie, with a Carter, a Rodham-Clinton, and even Bush and Cheney on the guest list.By Judy Owens Barack Obama in a swirl of distant cousins, (from top left) Dick Cheney, HRH Queen Elizabeth II, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, and Ruby Dee Graphic: Daily YonderA Kentucky genealogist has traced Sen. Barack Obamas heritage to one of the founding families of the nation, aRevolutionary War patriot named James Lewis Hickman.Obamas shared ancestry with American colonists may be a surprise to those who have been focusing on BarackHussein Obama, Sr., Obamas Kenyan father. But historical records prove that Obama has as much in commonwith the Kentucky frontier of Daniel Boone as he does with East Africa.Eric James discovered the connection when he was researching his own family tree, which sprouted such notables
  • 2. as the notorious James gang. While investigating some New England ancestors, he noted that Barack Obama wasrelated to George Bush. Research shows that Obama and Bush are linked through a 17th century Massachusettscouple named Samuel Hinckley and Sarah Soole."Hum,"• James said. "When I saw that, I thought, well, Im kin to Bush too. I just wonder if there could be aconnection."•It wasnt long before he discovered a colonial relation. It turns out that Obamas 7th great-grandfather is Col. JamesLewis Hickman. Hickman was born March 3, 1724 in Culpepper County, Virginia. Col. Hickman was awarded aland grant in rural Clark County, Kentucky. Hickmans wife, Hannah Lewis, was the daughter of Maj. DavisLewis, who also served in the American Revolution.James thought this information would be useful to the Obama campaign and attempted to make contact to offerthem his research. No one from the campaign ever answered him, though.James speculates that the campaign may have been squeamish about family history information after last fall, whenit became public that Vice President Dick Cheney is an eighth cousin of Obama. A spokesman for the Obamacampaign made a joke out of this relationship, describing Cheney as the black sheep of Obamas family.Kathy Stein, a Lexington, Kentucky, legislator and Obama supporter, said it has been maddening to deal withrumors about Obamas heritage. Talk radio in Lexington continues to spread the rumor that Obama is not anAmerican, or is a Muslim, or both."Im hopeful that this information about him can be shared, to dispel some of these rumors,"• Stein said.To some Obama supporters, the focus on Africa seems to be more than just idle curiosity about Obamas familyhistory."Im struck by the desire for a pedigree by those who live in a country founded of the freedom to marry, worshipand associate, fall in love and get married to whomever you choose,"• said Kelly Flood, a Unitarian minister, andsupporter of Obama. "The notion of pedigree, purity -- Its a ruse."•"Obamas story is the quintessential American story. His life story is rooted in the most American phenomenon: themelting pot,"• she said. Flood notes that through his mother lineage, Obamas ancestry goes back to the Americancolonies, and through his fathers line, "to Africa, where so many American citizens are from."•But in the thorny thicket that is family history, Obama is actually connected to Africa through his white mothersside, too. Hes a fifth cousin, seven times removed, of black entertainer Ruby Dee.The web site contains a feature called "Find Famous Relatives."• According to this feature,Obamas political pedigree is beyond interesting or notable. Its downright astonishing.For example, Obama is closely related to at least six individuals who have resided in the White House: Jane MeansAppleton Pierce, wife of President Franklin Pierce; Ronald Reagan; Elizabeth Virginia "Bess"• Wallace Truman,wife of President Harry Truman; President Jimmy Carter and Angelica Van Buren, daughter-in-law of PresidentMartin Van Buren who took over White House as hostess following the death of Van Burens wife.A recent article in the Atlantic Monthly revealed that during the Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton was advisedto attack Obamas heritage, but she declined.Maybe its because she wanted to take the moral high road. Or maybe its because she is Obamas cousin. Obamasshares a 10th great grandmother, Ann Sutton (1589-1654) with Clinton.
  • 3. Genealogists have found that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is related to four signers ofthe Declaration of Independence, including Pennsylvanian Robert Morris (shown here in John Trumbullspainting, seated at left and encircled in red.)Obamas political bona fides started with the Declaration of Independence. Francis Lightfoot Lee of Virginia,Caesar Rodney of Delaware, Pennsylvanian Robert Morris and Georgias Button Gwinnett were all signatories tothe declaration and are all ancestors of Obamas. He is related to at least three men who came to America on theMayflower.There is also a high probability that he is related to Queen Elizabeth of England, since they both descend fromDorothy Ann Tracy (1563-1612).Interest in African American genealogy has piqued in recent years, led by Henry Louis Gates, a Harvard professorwho has co-produced two PBS series, African American Lives and African American Lives 2, in which he tracesthe family history of black notables, including Oprah Winfrey, Chris Rock, Quincy Jones, Whoopi Goldberg andT.D. Jakes.Much of Gates research shows the consistent contribution made by courageous blacks fighting for independencealongside their white neighbors.In 2006, Gates was inducted into the Louisville-based Sons of the American Revolution showing that he descendedfrom John Redman, a black freedman. Gates has teamed with the Daughter of the American Revolution to helpdiscover black patriots, and so far he has identified more than 3,000 blacks who served. Gates has urged AfricanAmericans to follow his example and apply for membership to lineage organizations."What interested me,"• James said, "was that whether it is Obama, Cheney or Bush, many of those who governour nation have a long historical pattern of community building and an interest in public life."And its interesting that ethnicity or race or color has no meaning, really,"• he said. "Its your genes thatdetermines your genealogy and that determines who you really are."•
