Nathaniel Foote

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Nathaniel Foote was born in Colchester, England back in 1592. He immigrated to the United States where he worked as a surveyor. He was part of the settlement party that founded Wethersfield, Connecticut. His wife’s name was Elizabeth. He died in 1644, he was 52. Nothing memorable about Mr. Foote, however for those of you who follow me you know it’s not going to be that easy.

So here is the rest of the story. While you may not know Nathaniel you surely have heard of some of his descendants, if you haven’t you have got to go and see a doctor. Here is a few of them.

Warren Buffett, Amelia Earhart, Rutherford B. Hayes, Hugh Hefner, Sarah Jessica Parker and Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Hello James - the comment by Lise Howe is quite similar to the thoughts that came to mind as I read this post.

I'm stunned by this list of descendants, James. Always fascinated how they can put those family trees together going that far back.
