No, not because I lean left, but because I’m directly descended from a passenger of the Mayflower. And not just one, but technically four (maybe more).
Thirteen generations ago, Dameris Hopkins, my ancestor, sailed in 1620 with her father Stephen Hopkins, who was quite a character by reading his Wikipedia entry. Dameris ended up marrying John Cooke, who was also on the Mayflower with his father Francis Cooke.
This make me a very distant cousin of George Walker Bush, which is kinda funny.
This post is kind of a plug for ancestry.com, which is really fun!
