Another possibility was mentioned in a recent message concerning Jewish genes and
Jewish ancestry appearing in a DNA forum. The author of the message was
referencing Stern's "First Jewish Families." and stated that she was abbreviating
a long reference:
"(p.119) In America by 1767, Moses Hyams of Poland marries Judith Isaacs of
Germany. Their lineage continues through a Solomon and a Ricardo onward to Polock,
Nordhaus, Bensadon, to Alexander, Denison, Morris, Connaly, Tucker, Tillman onward
to a Dr. Isaac Ambrose who marries the daughter of John Blair Smith, who has a
daughter who marries Robert S. Todd of Lexington, Kentucky, whose daughter Mary
Todd marries Abraham Lincoln."
The same author listed the Jewish ancestry of numerous non-Jewish individuals, all
referenced to Stern's book.
I do not have Stern's book or I would have checked the reference.
I'm sure a number of JewishGen participants can access the book.
It may possibly provide the flip side to the Post's story.
Just a somewhat curious note to this discussion.
