Thought that some of you would find this of interest. If you Google( Ancestors of Barack Ibama) you will find lead compiler, William Addams Reitwiesner, who has an on going work in progress. Very impressive already.Labor intensive project.Big time!
Among the many ancestors on Obama's maternal side include: James Wilborn/Welborn and Mary Isabelle TEAGUE. (Side note) This Welborn/Teague line is known to many seasoned researchers.
But wait, there's more.(note here). I show a George Wilburn Overall in my own database,This is the same Overall line that connects to Obama's grandmother who died on Nov 3rd, 2008.Her birth name was Payne.Her grandmother was an OVERALL from Bullitt Co KY.This database consisting of Obama's ancestors also include a Wilburn Overall also of Bullitt Co KY.(But not the same one that I've entered into my own database.Different year of birth by some 20 years.)
Then another of Obama's ancestors is Harbin Wilburn McCurry b c 1790 who married Elizabeth Creekmore on Nov 16, 1815 in Barron Co KY.
Obama also has some BOWLES ancestors of Goochland, VA b c 1750 married into the Hughes line.(This Bowles line married into the Hughes line are related to my own ancestors, (not direct, however.Well, I believe the Hughes to be direct, but this is merely my own theory.
Lewis Wilburn b c 1732 m Mary Shipp.He is also related to this same BOWLES line.President Harry S Truman is also related to this same SHIPP line. (Goochland Co VA)So there are also a number of people today related to President Harry S Truman.In fact, I show a Wilburn Truman in my own database.
