New kinnections

For those of you socks wrapped-up in fame or genealogy (or both), I've added some names to my list of notable relations:

The new names are all descended from a common ancestor by the name of Samuel Lathrop who lived in Connecticut in the late 1600s:

  • Benedict Arnold, infamous Revolutionary War general and traitor.
  • Thomas E. Dewey, Governor of New York and failed presidential candidate.
  • John Foster Dulles, U.S. Secretary of State and airport namesake.
  • Clint Eastwood, legendary actor and Mayor of Carmel, California.
  • Ulysses S. Grant, Civil War general and President of the United States.
  • Frederick Law Olmstead, landscape architect who designed Central Park in NYC.
  • Anthony Perkins, the lead actor from the classic movie "Psycho."
  • Mitt Romney, Governor of Massachusetts and presidential candidate.
  • Adlai Stevenson, U.S. Senator and failed presidential candidate.
