Relationships with U.S. Presidents

February 16, 2021

According to Floyd Bliss Hanson, who married Ethel Louisa Hutchins, to whom I am 7th cousin 1x removed, the Hutchins family is related every U.S. president. He did not, however, give me all the genealogical information showing me that. In honor of Presidents Day, here is the latest research on my relationships with Presidents of the United States. In no way is this an endorsement of any president’s policies.
