President Harry S Truman – “Give ’em Hell Harry”

File Oct 04, 1 57 52 PM

President Truman had been previously reported through We’re Related as #146, a 7th cousin, three times removed, through our MRCA, Elizabeth Lee (1608-1687).  Elizabeth is one generation removed from my documented 8th great grandmother, Esther Ballard (1632-1717).   In this reporting, #334, We’re Related shows President Truman as a 8th cousin, twice removed, through our MRCA, John White (1600-1684).   In the #146 lineage, the trail leads up the Jenks – Ballard lines.   In the #334 lineage, the trail leads up the Botsford-Clark-White line.   In both cases, the lineage for President Truman is reported for his father, John Anderson Truman.  The two do not appear to cross until Harry’s great grandparents.   A very interesting research project!
