  1. Since the TV series TURN is coming to an end, I returned to my new little genealogy website I am building and decided to create a page on George Washington's Spymaster Nathaniel Sackett, as Nathaniel is my 3rd Cousin 5x and George Washington is my 3rd Cousin 6x. My little website is just my little hobby and could never compare to websites like The Sackett Family Association, however with my love of history and family it serves me well.

    So, building the page on Nathaniel, I reviewed his profile page on the Sackett website, which is extremely well done, and includes the fact that Nathaniel was recommended to Washington as a contact to supply intelligence on the British. I believe that neither one of them knew that they were related.

    Their common ancestor was Sir Robert III Ogle (1379-1495) of Northumberland, England. Nathaniel Sackett and George Washington were 11th Cousins.

    Just thought that it was an interesting bit of family ancestry trivia.

    Thank you Chris for having such a great website!
