John Kerry – married well, cuz!


John Kerry, my 9th cousin, through our MRCA Samuel Richardson (1635-1719) [see Johnny Depp, yesterday’s post] is married to the heiress of the Heinz fortune, Teresa Heinz.  Not significant except that the family of my grandfather was not allowed to buy any product that was in competition with Heinz, EVER.   This was due to Grandpa having worked for H.J. Heinz all through the Depression years in the U.S. and was payback for keeping his family safe and secure.  He would be amused that this connection is through his lineage.  At least he was connected to the family benefactor by marriage.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. 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.
