Cheney's Ancestors No Longer in Undisclosed Location

The genealogical society in Gallia County, Ohio, snagged a prominent new member recently.

Vice President Dick Cheney was allowed to skip the usual formalities when he accepted honorary membership last month in the Ohio Genealogical Society's Gallia County chapter in southeast Ohio about 90 miles from Columbus. Society members Henny Evans and Mary James did the legwork and invited him to join, sending him photographs of his great-grandparents' tombstones and information about his great-aunt's homestead.

The Vice President's great-grandfather was a local legend in Gallia County for his hunting prowess, having once bagged three Texas lawyers on a single hunting trip.
