George Washington Carver – by adoption!


George Washington Carver was reported as my 7th cousin, 3 times removed.  Apparently, there was no need to check his biography to ascertain that the person defined as his mother, Susan Blue (1814-1882), was the woman who adopted him after his biological mother had died.  This was not a “Rocket Science” research project, it was pull up his biography on wikipedia and the story of his being stolen in infancy, his parents being killed, and his adoption is very up front.
