William Manchester

“Still, if bloodlines mean anything, theirs was good stock.  It was enhanced in the New World; Sarah Barney Belcher of Taunton, Massachusetts, the boy colonel’s great-grandmother, became a common ancestor of Douglas MacArthur, Winston Churchill, and Franklin D. Roosevelt ― Douglas was an eighth cousin of Churchill and a sixth cousin, once removed, of FDR ― and three of WWII’s great leaders were thus linked by American intermarriages.” ― American Caesar, Douglas MacArthur 1880-1964, William Manchester, Page16.
