Thanks to my MIL’s exhaustive genealogy research, I can now say with certainty that my house was built by Alexander Hamilton’s wife’s third cousin twice removed.
Or, more verbosely…
- Alexander Hamilton’s wife was Elizabeth Schuyler.
- Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton is the great-great-granddaughter of Philip Pieterse Schuyler.
- Richards Kingsland Schuyler is the great-great-great-great-grandson of Philip Pieterse Schuyler.
- Richards is Elizabeth’s third cousin twice removed.
How Lin Manuel forgot to include this in his musical is beyond me but I’ll forgive him.
