My Connection to Alexander Hamilton

reading time 1 min

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.
