Ha! Danny, I'll see your 15th cousin and raise you six generations, lol!

Can't come close to beating Erica, though. Bummer. ;-)

You all have to find your own rogues & bring them to the project!

7/18/2013 at 5:54 PM

I already did. My very own granddad. Now I'll raise you a great uncle.

As an aside to Frank Reno....the 'bounty jumper'.....

Towns would often post bounties (or monetary rewards) to men to serve on behalf of a town if their were not enough manfolk to meet the quota set by the State.....many honest men, eager to get the bounty, would sign up and serve valiantly...but there were many scoundrels who would sign up, get the bounty money, and disappear......often a posse would be sent out to search for these men...they were originally called 'bounty jumper hunters' know what they call them now...

The towns were duty bound by their settlements agreements with the State to provide a certain number of men to serve from their towns in the event of any militia action....they risked being taxed if they could NOT meet their quota.

Frank Reno is your 15th cousin thrice removed.

Danny I saw Capt. Joseph Ball of Epping Forest in your relationship path to Frank Reno, which means that

Frank Reno is George Washington, 1st President of the USA's first cousin four times removed

7/18/2013 at 6:24 PM

How'd that happen? It's Danny's fault.

7/18/2013 at 6:42 PM

I cannot tell a lie, yup. I've been blamed for worse. All but 2 President's are cousins, and one of the two is related by marriage. That would be Tyler.

7/18/2013 at 6:45 PM

Gee, I just realized George Washington trumped us all.

7/18/2013 at 7:19 PM

George Washington, 1st President of the USA is your 10th cousin 8 times removed.

Fay who is that name changing rascal cousin of yours, the counterfeiter? He belongs in this project - he scammed the US Mint ...

You would have to ask, wouldn't you...::-)

Not off the top of my head....or anywhere easily accessible in that area.

I'll probably remember while sleeping (things like that pop into the noggin)

Frank Reno- my 14th cousin twice removed. Jesse James is much closer. Can't remember off the top of my head, though.

"he scammed the US Mint" - why, oh why don't I have anyone like this in my family tree? I want a horsethief sooooo badly! Not a genuine bad guy, just a rogue. One rogue, is that too much to ask?

If this personal rogue-drought continues, I may have to invent one. The Would-Be Grandfather!

7/19/2013 at 7:37 AM

Frank Reno is Eldon Clark (C)'s 17th cousin once removed!

7/19/2013 at 7:49 AM

GENi once told me that Abraham was 90 something great-grandfather. I asked for the complete list and found Zeus in it. Invent away Jennifer.

Maybe I could just borrow one? Or adopt-after-the-fact? This project seems like the perfect way to audition various potential roguish grgrgrandpas...

Curiosity made me check: Jesse James is my 3rd cousin thrice removed.

7/19/2013 at 5:36 PM

Robert Leroy Parker (aka "Butch Cassidy"), Wild Bunch Gang is your 13th cousin twice removed.

7/19/2013 at 6:34 PM

Fay Baldwin is Samuel Baldwin (Ford), Jr.'s (counterfeiter's) third cousin 6 times removed

Fay has moved ahead of me and catching up to
George Washington ....

7/19/2013 at 6:35 PM

Fay & Tammy in a dead heat for rogue closeness, but George Washington still ahead ...

7/19/2013 at 6:50 PM

What! My grandpa doesn't count?

7/19/2013 at 7:36 PM

You're the winner we're trying to overtake. By the way did you rig this project? :)

I'm supposed to have a riverboat gambler great great uncle ...

7/19/2013 at 7:43 PM

I've been waiting to see if Danny wins. I think I get to come in second with Earl Durand, my grandmother's boyfriend, said to have been my grandfather.

Earl Walter Durand

If he's not bad enough, I propose Wilford Luce, my 2nd great grandfather who, with his brothers and other gang members, castrated the Territorial Governor of Utah:

Wilford Woodruff "Will" Luce, Sr.

BTW, if any of you have a surplus of respectable relatives I'd be happy to get one.

7/19/2013 at 8:01 PM

Maybe you and Jennifer could trade some Justin. My entire patriarchal side is respectable, you want some of them? I know someone who could beat us all, but they don't have computer privileges in Turkish prisons.
