The relationship with the Bush family is refuted in the Pocahontas article:

== Mistaken assumption about a Bush family relation ==
A number of genealogists have attempted to link Presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush with Pocahontas, but this link has been proved to be based on the mistaken assumption that Robert Bolling, Jr. (a 10th generation ancestor of George W. Bush) was the son of Robert Bolling and Jane Rolfe (granddaughter of Pocahontas). This connection has been disproved by many reputable genealogists, who point out that Rolfe died in 1676, six years before the birth of the younger Bolling, who therefore could not have been her son. He was evidently the son of Anne Stith, whom his father married after Jane Rolfe's death. The Bush family, therefore, is not descended from Pocahontas.

If someone can make sense out of all this, please correct the article. Thanks. --ChrisRuvolo 01:08, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

From what I can find on Robert Bolling, President Bush is one of his descendants although not a descendant of Pocahontas. Dwain 22:44, Apr 23, 2005 (UTC)
I am going to remove the disputed accuracy tag because there is no problem according to the Pocahontas page. It says that Bush is descended from Robert Bolling and Anne Stith. Anne being Roberts second wife. What is the problem? Dwain 03:15, May 16, 2005 (UTC)
The current wording makes this much clearer. Removing disputed tag. Thanks. --ChrisRuvolo (t) 07:10, 16 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
