RJO’s “Notable Kin” — Gov. Sarah Louise (Heath) Palin

Genealogical links to various noted cousins, based largely on the work of Gary Boyd Roberts at the New England Historic Genealogical Society. See my main “Notable Kin” page for a complete listing.

Governor Sarah Louise (Heath) Palin (1964– )

Two of the four candidates for United States president and vice president in the 2008 elections have colonial New England ancestry: Barack Hussein OBAMA (1961– ) and Sarah Louise (HEATH) PALIN (1964– ). The ancestry of John Sidney MCCAIN III (1936– ) and Joseph Robinette BIDEN Jr. (1942– ) lie mainly in Virginia and the mid-Atlantic states, respectively.

Obama is a descendant of Massachusetts immigrants Edward FITZRANDOLPH (1607– ) and Samuel HINCKLEY ( –1662) of Scituate, but these lines do not connect to any of mine as far as I have been able to determine. Palin, on the other hand, has considerable Massachusetts ancestry, and it is likely that I am linked to her through several common ancestors. The connection below shows us to be twelfth cousins once removed by virtue of our common descent from Edward FROST (1560/1–1616), a clothier of Glemsford and Stanstead, Suffolk, and his wife Thomasine BELGRAVE (1561/2– ) of Leverington, Cambridgeshire. Several of their children emigrated to Massachusetts where they left many descendants.
