* celebrating presidential ancestry: Martin Van Buren

In honor of President's Day, I'm gonna brag about Jalena's Presidential ancestry. President Martin Van Buren is her GGGGG Grandfather! President Van BurenI've known Jalena forever. It all started in 7th grade science class with my purple plastic shirt and Jalena's plastic leopard bag. We've been best friends ever since. Jalena's family has many famous ancestors and we started researching her family hisotory to find out more! I was very interested to learn that her family was somehow related to President Martin Van Buren. Jalena's dad is Stuyvesant Fish Morris V, with a name like that there is obviously a story. There were 3 prominent families; the Stuyvesant's, the Fish's, and the Morris's, all wanted their names passed down to future generations. The name Stuyvesant Fish Morris was born to the son of Dr. Lewis Richard Morris and Elizabeth Stuyvesant Fish (Granddaughter of Peter Stuyvesant) in 1843.
