Claim Your Ancestor #21: Thomas Jefferson and Miss America

One of my favorite things to do is to hunt for presidential names in family histories in ancestry. Almost every family has one -- some has several.  One family had a whole generation named Hamilton, Lafayette, Franklin and Jefferson.

I just came across Thomas Jefferson Miller marrying Miss America Alice Carver in 1885.

Are these your people?

 Do these names persist in your family?

You should investigate.
