Correction. He also has Welsh and Dutch ancestry as well both threw his third great grandmother Hariet Sapington. The Welsh threw Nathianiel Sapington who was born in Wales and moved to Maryland in the 1600s. The Dutch threw the Van Der Haydens. First person I could find born in Holland was Jacob van der Hayden born in 1616 and his wife born in 1636.
