George W. Bush related to Pocahontas

Posted by admin on May 21, 2008

U.S. President George W. Bush is related to Pocahontas – in two ways!

The President’s 8th great-grandfather Robert Bolling was married twice. His first wife, Jane Rolfe, was Pocahontas’ only grandchild. Bush descends from Robert Bolling through his second marriage to Ann Stith.

In addition, Bush’s 8th great-aunt Mary Kennon married Pocahontas’ great-grandson, John Bolling. (Interestingly John Bolling was the son of Robert Bolling and his first wife, Jane Rolfe).

Through these two links, President Bush is related to most – if not all – of Pocahontas’ living descendants. See the President Bush-Pocahontas family tree.
