Branson Connection to Abe

You have to take a few twists and turns, but we have discovered that President Abraham Lincoln shared a relative with the Branson family. William Franklin Branson's first cousin 3 times removed, Andrew Cornessus Branson, married Nancy Hutton. Nancy's great aunt was Margaret Bates. Margaret's great-great-grandmother was Mary Lincoln.  Mary Lincoln was Abraham Lincoln's third great grand aunt.

Whew!  Those are a lot of twists and turns!
