I did a little research yesterday about a story my father had told me about my grandfather possibly "courting" one of John Dillinger's cousins back in the 1930's. Long story short, after a couple of hours of internet searches into the gangster's genealogy, I believe it was just a tall tale. Anyway's, does anybody here have any interesting stories about ancestors who might have taken a special part in US history, or possibly invented something? Just curious. Thanks!
