Billy "the Pittsburgh Kid" the boxer

I've had my relatives say something about Billy being related to us. Though, just because his last name is Conn isn't much proof, since, obviously, there are many Conns and I doubt we're ALL really related. However, my "clan" is from the Pittsburgh area. I was just wondering, I'm surprised everyone with the name Conn isn't scrapping for a claim to some kind of blood tie to "the Pittsburgh Kid."
