Randy Seaver over at GeneaMusings has come up with another great Saturday Night Fun challenge. 

It’s Saturday Night, time for more Genealogy Fun!!

The genealogy world was reminded (again) of how time flies, relatively speaking, by the news that there are two living grandchildren of President John Tyler (1790-1862).  This past week there was theRobert Krulwich blog post about persons knowing people who knew famous people long ago.

For this week’s mission (should you decide to accept it), I want you to:

1)  Using your ancestral lines, how far back in time can you go with two degrees of separation?  That means “you knew an ancestor, who knew another ancestor.”  When was that second ancestor born?

2)  Tell us in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, in a status line on Facebook or a stream post on Google Plus.

 
Here is my contribution:  
 
I was born in 1961 and I remember (and I have a picture) of spending an afternoon with my great grandparents, Joe Lee Coleman (1901-1968) and Amie Mae Sulephen (1903-1995). Amie knew her grandparents that died in the same county as she lived. They were George W. Casteel born 1854 in Tennessee and died about 1933 and Nancy Ann Seaton born 1857 in Hardin, TN or Waterloo, AL and died 1948 in Alcorn County, MS.
