Researchers claim that a brutal slave-trader who brought captive slaves from West Africa to Colonial America is the same man whose descendants produced two U.S. presidents. George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush.
Historians already knew that the Bush family was directly connected to Thomas Walker, yet they were unable to figure out which was the ancestor of the Bush's.
Records show there was a Thomas Walker who was a merchant from Baltimore who was in Great Britain in 1758.
Archives also show Thomas Walker was a slave merchant and captain who bought and sold West African slaves in the late 1700s.
However, it was only recently that a retired genealogist and a historian in Sierra Leone finally figured out the two Thomas Walkers are actually the same person.

obama’s heritage could show the obama line being involved in the slave trade in africa, too. muslims sold slaves, as well as black tribes that defeated other tribes.
I mean you try to bring them up right. You know discipline them and taking them to church and Sunday school and all. But then they go off on their own and do something crazy like getting in to the slave trade!
Well what are you going to do? Theyre your ancestors. You got to love them and let them be dead.
Yeah, but how do they know he was a “brutal” slave trader?
Bammy, the mulatto, has no slave blood.
Wow, if Obama wasn’t 50% white and 44% arab, perhaps we could race-bait our way into a story here.
6% of Barry Soetoro is outraged.
And the sellers of those slaves were the persons who actually took them prisoner during tribal wars and impressed them into slavery, and were...
