Ky Lewis County Bloomfields Related To Barack Obama

The Lewis County Bloomfield family goes back to Thomas Bloomfield and his wife (Mary?). They were Barack Obama's 9th ggparents -their daughter Mary Bloomfield married Jonathan Singletary Dunham. Also, Mary's brother, Ezekiel Bloomfield married Hope FitzRandolph. Hope FitzRandolph is a sister to Nathaniel, Obama's 9th ggrandparent. No only that but Hope and Nathaniel's mother Elizabeth Blossom FitzRandolph is the daughter of the pilgrim Thomas Blossom who was on the Speedwell in 1620 and later a ship named the Mayflower in 1629 (probably not the original 1620 Mayflower). Also, Elizabeth Blossom's brother Peter is supposedly in George Bush line. So, the Bloomfield's are at least a double distant cousin to Obama and distant cousin to George Bush. Ekekiel Bloomfield and Hope FitzRandolph are grandparents of Dr Moses Bloomfield, Chief Surgeon of the Army under George Washington. Dr Moses Bloomfield was father of Attorney General/Gov/Gen Joseph Bloomfield.
