1. Socialising
2. The first man to marry in Hobart in 1804 in what was then the penal colony of Van Dieman's Land, later to be called Tasmania. His second wife and their son-in-law were both transported convicts. Also their granddaughter, my great-grandmother, both celebrated her marriage and enthusiasm for Australia on Federation Day, 1/1/1901. My husband's family claim descent from Rob Roy McGregor.
3. Anyone else? :D

1. Party
2. Per family tradition, Napoleon was a great uncle and my great-great-great-great grandfather apparently came over during the civil war from France and spoke no English and treated (he was a doctor) soldiers on both sides.
Roger Williams, the founder of Rhode Island, is also supposedly an ancestor and most of the sons and grandsons became pastors until my great grandfather who got kicked out of seminary for unsavory conduct.
3. I don't want to break the streak, any interesting relatives?

1. Balloons

2. Let's see. . . We're supposedly descendents of Henry Clay, the famous Kentucky politician. Much more closely related to us (relatively speaking) is Luke Perry of Beverly Hills 90210 fame. Let's see. . . he is the son of my great uncle's sister. I have no idea what that makes him to me, but his mother has been to several family gatherings. Non relatives with whom my family has been closely associated include Roy Rogers (who my Great Grandmother used to babysit) and Louis Bromfield (with whom a different great uncle was best friends).

3. Same question. . . Any interesting relatives?
