[John M. Gwin Note:  Hearsay dictates that this line is allegedly mine; however, I cannot prove anything beyond generation 23.  Princess Cleopatra is allegedly half-sister to Pocahontas.  Nothing beyond generation 23 is proven and must be taken as hearsay only.  I share it here to provide a basis for further research.]
