Famous Relative ?
I have been asked many times if I am related to Toussaint Charbonneau, who was a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. My daughter Molly has finally found the connection, and a chart for defining the relationship. This chart establishes that I am his third cousin, five times removed. This means that I am five generations from Toussaint's third cousin. One of his grandfathers and one of my grandfathers were brothers.
The reason for the ? after the title was that Toussaint was not a sterling character. He had a couple of wives and was not too nice to them, and he may have tipped over a canoe on the expedition and lost valuable equipment. If you do a web search on his name, you will find lots of details on his performance, little that is complimentary.
