Árbol genealógico de los Blair (3)

John Blythe Dobson es un experto en genealogía y tiene en su web un interesante artículo, con el árbol genealógico incluido sobre la relación familiar entre Montgomery Clift y su abuela Jean Margaret (Kennedy) Mitchelson, que era de Canadá. La relación le viene a Monty a través de su abuelo materno Woodbury Blair y el nexo que une a ambas personas es la familia Quick a partir del matrimonio enre el holandés Theunis Thomasz. Quick y Belitje Jacobs van Vleckensteyn quienes vivieron en torno a 1670 (siglo XVII).

Recojo aquí la información porque yo también soy una apasionada de la genealogía.

Although Montgomery Clift was primarily of New England ancestry, through the Wendell family he was also descended from the Quick family of New York City, whence he was a 9th cousin once removed of my grandmother, Jean Margaret (Kennedy) Mitchelson.
The distinguished Quincy-Wendell clan were also ancestors of Dorothy Quincy, wife of John Hancock, of Louisa May Alcott, the novelist, and of Barrett Wendell, the literary critic. On the somewhat humbler Kranckheyt side of the table, interesting descendants include the brothers Mark and Carl Van Doren, literary critics, and Walter Cronkhite, the television journalist.
The founder of the Quicks probably had not settled on this surname when he came from Naarden in the Netherlands to New York, as it never appears in the earliest records in which he is mentioned. He appears to have been of quite humble social status, and is often called simply called “Theunis the mason” (Theunis de metselaer) instead of by his patronymic (Thomasz.). This has caused confusion in the literature with at least one other Theunis who happened to be a mason.

The Right Profile
Lyric
Say, where did I see this guy?
In red river?
Or a place in the sun?
Maybe the misfits?
Or from here to eternity?

Everybody say, is he all right?
And everybody say, whats he like?
Everybody say, he sure looks funny.
Thats...Montgomery Clift, honey!

New York, New York, New York, 42nd street
Hustlers rustle and pimps pimp the beat
Monty Clift is recognized at dawn
He aint got no shoes and his clothes are torn

I see a car smashed at night
Cut the applause and dim the light
Monty's face is broken on a wheel
Is he alive? can he still feel?

Everybody say, is he all right?
And everybody say, whats he like?
Everybody say, he sure looks funny.
Thats...Montgomery Clift, honey!

Nembutol numbs it all
But I prefer alcohol

He said go out and get me my old movie stills
Go out and get me another roll of pills
There I go again shaking, but I aint got the chills
