Man, I'm tired, but I have to share some Presidential tidbits I learned today while trying to research data for an article on the Presidents.  At least what I have to tell you is very brief and strictly just sa passing interest.

Here's the information:

   Jarrard-April 3- Thomas Jefferson (#3)

2. Barack Obama is the 17th cousin of Charles, Prince of Wales.

3. Jimmy Carter is a distant cousin of Berry Gordy Jr.

4. Franklin Pierce is a distant cousin of former first lady Barbara Bush,
