Zion Presbyterian ChurchBetween 1705 and 1775, persecution, drought, and famine drove 500,000 Scotch Presbyterians from North Ireland to America. Many of these immigrants found their way to South Carolina in the Williamsburg District. They laid off a town and named it Kingstree. These devout Presbyterians busied themselves organizing churches there and in adjoining settlements. The church in Kingstree was formally organized in August, 1736. Among these Scotch-Irish immigrants were our Dickey ancestors, who sailed to South Carolina in 1772.

It turns out that my husband's grandfather is the 34 x great grandson of Charlemagne, and my grandmother is the 37 x great granddaughter of Charlemagne, which makes us 36th cousins 3 times removed.

Naturally, the evidence for relationships beyond 9-12 generations is limited, at best, and should be treated as family lore or hearsay, probably. Still, it is amusing to draw the lines and see.

I find that if you can get a Western European ancestor back to the late 1500s or early 1600s, you can then (usually) find a mythical connection back to one of the royal lines in Europe.
