As opposed to all of the fascinating Revolutionary War stories of Freeper ancestors, my great-grandfather knocked up a babe in England and beat feet to the wilds of Michigan. Brave men run in my family.

“Brave men run in my family.”
Sounds like the cowards do too!
I just heard a glimpse of Savage’s show the other night on how people go on about their ancestry and how great they were. He was saying how he knows nothing of his - and imagines they included horse thieves and murderers. “How come we never hear about the horse thieves and murderers?”
So thanks for the story!
(Hmm. Back then it was hanging for thieves and murderers - so an early version of the “Darwin Award” - and hence not in many ancestries!?)
