Lesson 1329 – E.B. White’s connection to the flock

I was looking for a book last night and although I never found that book, I did find this one. My mother had asked her sister’s husband (my Uncle Brit) to clarify our family’s relationship to E.B. White.

This book was mailed to me right before I had some knee surgery and got lost. I’d always known that E.B. White was my Great-Uncle (although that “Uncle Andy” part threw me) and finally, here is how.

Also, join me on Facebook to find out more about the flock (children and chickens) and see some pretty funny chicken jokes, photos of tiny houses, and even a recipe or two.

    I don’t mean to burst your bubble here, but your Uncle Brit is an uncle by marriage (your aunt’s husband); thus, his uncle, E.B. White is not blood-related to you, therefore, not “your” uncle, technically. I’m sure the familial connection is a nice anecdote for your family history, though, so enjoy it!

    I do enjoy reading your blog.

      No bubble burst, I am fully aware that my relationship is by marriage, but it still makes for a great story at *every* Holiday dinner.

      Our family is also related to Aaron Burr, obviously by his father, as Aaron’s only child, a daughter – Theodosia died in a shipwreck (my mother’s name is Theodosia Burr) and we can also trace some relationship to various Presidents.

      It’s not so much the blood as the story that makes these connections so very interesting.

      And thanks for reading the blog. Writing in it is one of my favorite things to do.
