It is also reported that Sarah Palin happens to be related to well known conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. They are all cousins through John Lathrop, a Church minister who came from England.
In 2009 it was revealed by Ancestry.com that President Obama was related to Warren Buffett, who is his 7th cousin three times removed, and also is related to Brad Pitt who is his 9th cousin. President Obama is also related to Former Vice President Dick Cheney through Mareen Duvall, a 17th century immigrant from France, reports The Chicago Sun Times.
AZCentral.com reports ..."The ties run through Obama's White, Kansas-born mother's side of the family. Palin's tie to Obama is through early Massachusetts settler John Smith, a Protestant pastor in the 1670s. Smith's wife was the sister of one of the first governors of the Plymouth Bay colony, Thomas Hinckley. Hinckley's father, Samuel, is the familial link between Obama and Bush. Obama's and Limbaugh's common ancestor is Richmond Terrell, who settled in Virginia around 1656 and acquired a large amount of land."
