Famous Distant Relatives of the Priest

Due to a post on this blog, I have been contacted by a relative of my father's father. It is rather cool as I don't know too much about that part of my family. Any way, I do have some famous, rather distant relatives. Here they are in no particular order:

John Wilkes Booth (1838-1865) "Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?"

Ezra Taft Benson (1899-1994) Agriculture Secretary under Eisenhower, President of the Mormon Church, and noted anti-Communist.

Fay Wray (1907-2004) Actress and girlfriend of King Kong.

Heinrich the Fowler (876-936) Holy Roman Emperor.

St. Mathilda of Ringelheim (895-968) Wife of the above and saint.
