Ancestors


I love genealogy, but sometimes it kind of hits you in the face. My kids really like that cartoon Liberty Kids.  It is an historical cartoon dealing with the Revolutionary War.  I actually like it, too.  Anyway, one of the "bad" guys is the British General Howe.  Yep, we are related to him.  I couldn't find the clip where he is featured, but he is mentioned in the above episode.  It is funny to see one of your relatives made into a cartoon.  While General Howe was heavily involved in the Revolutionary War, his record was less then distinguished and he eventually fled back to England to defend his questionable actions. I imagine that he is why we don't talk about him too much ;-)
