Why couldn't it have been someone a little more respectable?

The Rocket Scientist is heavily into genealogy.  I actually think this is great; somebody needs to do it, and I have neither the inclination nor the patience.  This week's tidbit? That he (and by extension, the kids) are distantly related to Jesse James.  (Third cousin four times removed, I think.)

I think it says a lot that the Red-Headed Menace is more excited about this than any other genealogical discovery, even more than that they were very distantly related to Elizabeth I of England. (Second cousin, thirteen times removed.)  As the Rocket Scientist observed, outlaws count for a lot more than queens.
