Family Genealogy
Thursday, February 08, 2007
 


In my last post I listed seven ancestors that lived past their 90th birthday. Three of the seven are close relatives. Beulah Fish is the daughter of Abner Fish and the mother of Lorenzo Weinhart. It makes you wonder if genetics played a role in their longevity. It became even more interesting when I found that Beulah's son from a second marriage, Watson Knight, lived to be 101. This pretty much established that if genetics was involved it was passed through the Fish side of the family. I checked the ages of Abner's parents and siblings and found one brother that lived to be 91. I also checked the ages of Abner's children and besides Beulah the oldest was 87.
