I mentioned in an earlier post that while watching the new version of the mini 
series, Roots, that I noticed a person that I thought was an ancestor, Tom Lea, 
father of Chicken George.I did some genealogical research and found that I am a 
cousin of Chicken George. Lawd H'mercy!Turns out that he is a fifth cousin, 
twice removed, if I have it right.My fourth great grand father was the Rev. 
Luke Lea, originally from Spotsylvania Va., moved to Caswell county NC.His 
brother was Lt Major Lea, also of Caswell county NC.Lt Major Lea fathered Major 
Lea, who fathered Tom Lea. Tom Lea was Chicken George's father. Chicken George 
is Alex Haley's great or great great grandfather.
