You don't talk about royal lines or medieval ancestry very much (if at all) but Olive (Welby) Farwell is a gateway ancestress to such things. She descends from Edward I of England. See Royal Descents of 600 Immigrants to the US by Gary Boyd Roberts, p. 338 or Plantagenet Ancestry by Douglas Richardson, III: 456.

Hey, cool! You and I are 8th cousins, once removed! Your 7G Grandparents, Joseph Farwell and Hannah Colburn, are my 8G Grandparents. My brush with greatness! Not only am I related to all those kings (no big deal), but I'm related to THE Randy Seaver (big deal)!
