7th-Grader: Obama, Most US Presidents Related – Central Coast News Story – KSBW The Central Coast:
SALINAS, Calif. — A seventh-grader and her 80-year-old grandfather are allegedly the first people to discover that President Barack Obama is related to all other U.S. presidents except one.
BridgeAnne d’Avignon, who attends Monte Vista Christian School in Watsonville, traced that Obama, and all other U.S. presidents except Martin Van Buren, are related to John ‘Lackland’ Plantagenet, a king of England and signer of the Magna Carta.
Hat-tip to Father Milovan.
BridgeAnne claims that President Obama is her 11th cousin. I wonder what relation he is to the other US presidents.

As I’ve said before, I don’t know if any how Hailee Growden is related, burt here’s a snippet of news anyway.
The Hagerstown Community College volleyball team underwent a changing of the guard Thursday at the HCC athletic complex.
Three Williamsport players signed Thursday – middle hitter Katie Koontz, outside hitter Hailee Growden and setter Lindsey Kneisley.
Growden, an All-Area Second Team selection last season, averaged 2.01 kills and 3.32 digs and served 50 aces for the Wildcats. She also was Williamsport’s fiery leader.
“I love playing the leadership role, trying to fire up my team,” Growden said. “I’m ready for any challenge, any position.”
“She’s going to be one of our emotional leaders,” Domenico said. “She’s a versatile player so we might try some different things with her.”
