Holz: Fortunate Son? I don't think I ever mentioned this before, but I have some political blood flowing through my veins. My great-great-great-grandfather, William Rufus deVane King was Vice President of the United States, for Franklin Pierce.
Last weekend, Andy Rooney mentioned him on 60 minutes in a section on vice president. Here's the link if you care to see it.
And yeah, I read the gay rumors, too. Make all the jokes you want.
...ETA: according to this link, King died un-married, and I haven't found any mention of children. I'm wondering if he's only a great-great-great-granduncle. If so, that's a family story alot of us have taken for granted.
...hmph. I actually found his will online, and there's no mention of children. He was pretty generous though. His nephew got 65 of his negroes.Holz | 8:10 PM | Rant & Rave, Bitches! (3)
So thanks for posting - love the family facts - but since semi-political could not help but comment on debate - well gosh oh gee tell me it aint so joe - you did not just kick cheneys ass. Bidens tirade on Cheney was the best thing I have ever seen on a debate
It's true that William Rufus deVane King had no children, but he did have siblings.
very cool.....i didn't even know that stuff. thanks for the extra info too! - SIS
