    Edmund’s parents are listed as Nathan Macy and Eliza Gilpin.

    And according to “Genealogy of the Macy Family from 1635-1868” compiled by Silvanus J. Macy, pub New York 1868, the above records and Ethan’s entry on wikipedia, his Macy lineage would be:

    Ethan Hawke 12, James Hawke 11, Frank Taylor Hawke 10, Betty Virginia (Hartsock) Hawke 9, Winifred (Macy) Hartsock 8, Edmund Antram 7, Nathan D. 6, David 5, David 4, David 3, John 2, Thomas Macy

    This would give Ethan a kinship with Rowland Hussey Macy, the founder of R.H. Macy and Company: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rowland_Hussey_Macy

    From the Macy genealogy book, Rowland’s Macy lineage is:

    Rowland Hussey 8, John 7, Silvanus 6, Caleb 4, Richard 3, John 2, Thomas Macy

    Through Ethan’s Macy lineage he also has a connection to the actor William H. Macy: http://ethnicelebs.com/william-h-macy

    Based on William’s information above and the Macy genealogy book, William’s Macy lineage is:

    William Hall 8, William Hall Sr 7, Albert Hall 6, William Henry 5, John, Robert 4, Thomas 3, John 2, Thomas Macy
