Haven't played in awhile so I figure I'll just spread what I have some I'm not really able to play anymore.

Anyways as for the contest, What famous American am I related to?

I will give hints as the contest goes along.

First hint, the person is no longer living.

Thomas Edison

May we guess more than once as more hints come out?

DaH4mburglar July 27 2010 8:56 PM EDT

Nope, and I forgot to add...lets limit it to say 2 guesses per day.

I'm not sure if that was confusing Womp, but just to clarify...Nope to Z's guess and yes, you can guess as much as you want as long as it's no more than twice a day.

So far nobody has gotten it.

A few more hints...The person is a male

And there have been several portrayals of him in movies and television...Including at least one movie I know of dedicated to his life...possibly more. :)

Woo...glad we didn't drag this one out. Congrats ScrO...the answer is Jesse James.

I only found this out days ago at a family reunion...wasn't exactly sure if I should be excited or ashamed haha.

There will definitely be another contest. I have lots more I can give.

ScrObot July 29 2010 1:32 PM EDT

Haha, lucky guess. Cool story! (=

3 different Lincoln guesses, lots of non-Americans, lots of people who lived partially or completely in different centuries... reading comprehension for the win! ;)

Thanks a bunch!
