Pres. Bush and his challenger are distant cousins. They are both apparently descended from Edmund Reade and Elizabeth Cooke.

See their family tree here (Click on Kerry’s picture).

  • Thanks, as the family tree explains the poll results – Gallups are in the Bush family, too 🙂

  • Eric Olsen

    fascinating, although we are ALL related to an ape named Edgar who stood upright a couple of million years ago

  • I prefer to believe that we are all related to a couple with the names of Adam and Eve. Intelligent Design anyone? 🙂


  • JR

    Intelligent Design anyone?

    Not for anyone intelligent.

  • I’m not sure I get your idea, JR — surely not that belief in God precludes one from being intelligent. However, I think this is a very interesting discovery. Of course, you don’t need to go back very far to discover things like this. I read somewhere once that everyone in England is related no more distantly than 30th cousins (which is pretty damned distant, but it’s still food for thought). Again, this was interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  • Dan Quayle and Dick Cheney are both in the family, too, having decended from the same MA ancestors as the Bushes.
