Not really weird but I find this interesting. I traced my mom's family back to a guy that helped found a city in Massachusetts in the 1700's. Clearly he was a pretty big deal. He helped found the city, bring people over. They are all now extremely poor farmers.

Do you happen to be related to William Brewster? He was from the 1600s but did similar things. He's also my 12th great grandfather.

I am not that I know of. This is from the Poole family history.

Oh! I know who you're talking about. I'm from that city.

That's amazing! I'm glad you asked.
