Jimmy Stewart is from our general area, and was distantly related (not actual blood relation, but related to cousins of my half-brothers & -sisters). So was John Wayne. Actually, John Wayne may have been a blood relative, as we had Morrisons in our ancestry, and we’re pretty sure they were related to “Aunt Nellie” (who was a cousin or second cousin to Jimmy Stewart). She was married to a brother of my mother’s first husband. I’m sure you’re all delighted with this little piece of information.
And no, I didn’t know any of that about Jimmy Stewart.
