Abraham Lincoln may not have been much of a looker, but according to Ancestry.com, George is Abe’s half-first cousin, five times removed.
Both apparently have deep roots in Kentucky, but they also share a myriad of other similarities.

And obviously both have the talent of being able to grow a really great beard.”
