Do you have any historical figures in your family tree?

Once, in elementary school, I told people I was related to Montgomery Ward. I wasn't, but it just sounded cool to say I had a famous relative. Instead, my family tree is completely devoid of anyone famous, save one of the band members from Blood, Sweat, and Tears.

But, I want to know: Who here has famous relatives? How far back? And what did they do to become famous?
