David Glasgow Farragut – fostered genealogy


Admiral Farragut as a cousin was quite impressive.   My lineage kept going with names and dates beyond my documented 5th great grandmother, Thankful Isham (1752-1834) for another 5 generations to our MRCA, Richard Ingraham (1600-1683).  Not a single PRIVATE in my line nor in the Admirals.   Then, I read his biography on Wikipedia – something We’re Related seemed to have attached but not referenced.   The lineage given to David Farragut is that of David Porter, HIS FOSTER FATHER.   Uh, We’re Related, that is NOT how it works.

Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
