I’m a descendant of William Hoge and Barbara Hume Hoge who both immigrated from Scotland to America in 1680. They were my great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparents.
UPDATE—When a couple of my aunts (my mother’s sisters) were doing genealogical research so they could join the DAR, they discovered that they were descended matrilineally from Elizabeth Hoge, the daughter of James Hoge, Sr. (William and Barbara’s grandson) who served in a Pennsylvania militia at Valley Forge. My father was a descendant of James Hoge, Jr., which means that my parents were fifth cousins and that I’m my own sixth cousin.
Well, at least you’re not your own Grandpa …
