Obama is George Bush's 11th cousin.
Dick Cheny is Bush's Cousin
Bradd Pitt is Bush' s Cousin
It sure would be an awkward family reunion. But, believe it or not, Barack Obama is related to both President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.
OK, distantly related: Obama and Bush are 11th cousins.
That's because they share the same great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandparents -- Samuel Hinckley and Sarah Soole
Hinckley of 17th century Massachusetts
That means Obama and former President George Herbert Walker Bush are 10th cousins once removed.
Obama is related to Cheney through Mareen Duvall, a 17th century immigrant from France.
Mareen and Susannah Duvall were Obama's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandparents and Cheney's
That makes Obama and Cheney ninth cousins once removed.
Cheney and Bush are related to one another by a completely different common ancestor.
We leave it to you to figure out their relationship.
Just makes you wonder who else they are all related to!!!!???
