Famous Descendants of Stephen Hopkins:
Source:  FamousKin.com

Through the diligent and laborious efforts of my grandfather (Gramps), Dr. Edwin S. Flinn, my family's lineage has been traced to one of the passengers who came over to the new world on the Mayflower in 1620 - a man named Stephen Hopkins.  Hopkins had also been to the Jamestown colony on an earlier voyage in 1609.

Actually, according to a statistic that I read somewhere, approximately 10% of the people in the United States are Mayflower descendants, they just don't know it.  So it's not surprising, really, that my family is related to some famous people.  A signer of the Declaration of Independence, a couple of former Vice Presidents, Governors, some entertainers and artists - that's pretty impressive.  But please, in the name of all that is Holy, tell me I'm not really related to Howard "YEAH!" Dean.

I've been looking for this information for quite a while.  Originally, the only famous relative I could find was Sarah Palin.  I knew there had to be some more famous relatives out there somewhere.  Thanks to the FamousKin website, I found a treasure-trove of genealogy information, and in particular information about the pilgrims and their descendents.  Enjoy!
