I hear that we are related to the man who wrote the Webster Dictionary and that we are somehow related to the Wright Brothers.

My great, great, great Grandma or something like that was caught cheating on her husband and he locked her up in the castle in Germany and through the man over the cliff. She was there locked up until the husband died when the son let her out.

We also have a family crest and we have some Historical thing On Hugenot Street in New York where people can tour the houses built there.

Four people in my family got married and nobody's last name changed, even though the wives went by their dh's last name. Both my grandparents ironically already had the same last name and my grandfather's sister married my grandmother's brother, so that's how it went for us and fortunately no incest was involved in the telling of this story!
