Pres. Obama has (almost) Mormon ancestry

Barack Obama is the first United States president known to have Mormon ancestry.

President Obama is a great-great-grandson of Nancy Ann Childress Osburn Armour Turner, who was a member of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (RLDS).

Genealogical research reveals that the much-married Nancy Ann Childress (1848-1924) is President Barack Obama’s Mormon ancestor. She married 1) James Osburn in 1868, 2) George W. Armour (ca. 1849-1889) in 1871, and 3) James T. Turner who had previously married Nancy’s sister, Sarah Catharine. Nancy and James were wed in 1897.
