Barack Obama's aunt was found living in Boston. His great-great-great-grandmother was found dead in Everett, Washington.
Rachel Wolfley's grave marker at the Evergreen Cemetery in Everett hadn't seen the light of day in decades.
It had literally faded into the landscape, covered long ago by a thick rug of grass and forgotten over nearly a century since she died.
There is no date of birth or death or family tribute on the gray concrete block, just her name -- and the last name is misspelled.
Wolfley's marker would no doubt still be buried beneath the cemetery sod were it not for her famous great-great-great grandson, who on Nov. 4 could be elected the next president of the United States. [Link]
