    As for me, I'm a direct descendant of Johann Sebastian Bach. A second cousin removed (or something like that) is a U.S. senator. And, I guess I'm somewhat "famous." My work has been featured on national TV and I'm often requested to travel around the country on commission.

    My great aunt was married to the artist Alexander Leydenfrost. He was pretty close to my family, though I was quite young when he died.

    The well-known art critic and dealer Walter Reed (not the guy they named the hospital after ) is my wife's uncle.

    And supposedly, the country singer Sonny James was a distant cousin, but I have no idea of the lineage of that.

    I've heard from my cousin that she have found Jesus and is worst to talk to than a jw.

    Ms. Jones:

    I remember seeing Vanity on some talk show back in the early '90s and she was really talking about her experience about being born again and finding Jesus and all that; she seemed real happy, etc. I still have some of her music in mp3 format on my computer
