The FULKERSON and VIGNE families in America have had quite a few soirees and connections with well-known historical figures.

Note...we have three-fourths of the Presidents on Mount Rushmore among the names listed above.  We may have the last fourth, the George Washington connection, if we can confirm that Magdalena Dircks' descendant, Cornelius Davenport, was an aide to George Washington at the Morristown winter quarters (or at any time between 1775 and 1783). Send an E-mail if you have any information.
