    My family was somehow involved in the founding of Coca-Cola. I don't remember the guy's name, but I know that my great-grandmother's uncle left an unbelievable amount of shares in the company to my great grandma and her siblings because he had no children or anything. Like, my grandma only got half of his shares and sold less than half of her's in the 70s to build a 6 bedroom house, with a finished basement, under-the-house garage, and attic and a formal living room. Now thats a lot of coke shares!

    I don't have any cool ancestors in recent generations, but through my Scottish great-grandma I have ancestors in the Wallace clan, which is moderately cool.
