The Founding Fathers

While over here in Shanghai enjoying some unseasonably warm weather, I have found some time to continue my research into my American ancestors.

I have added some new pages to my website, including one on my 1st cousin, 8x removed, Erza Stiles. As well as being a Reverend, Ezra was friends with many notables from the American Revolution including Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.

Ezra was also a founder of Brown University and President of Yale University.

Despite all of this, Ezra did have a dark side.

Read about Ezra and his story on my website and let me know what you think.
