Mommie Dearest and her cousins are going apeshit on the geneological research. Apparently my great-great-great uncle on my mother's grandmother's side was Samuel R. Smith, founder of Messiah College. Mom found a brief bio of Smith stating that he was an atheist before some kind of quo vadis moment led him into the Christian academics business.
And I was always told as a kid that my mother and I--who earned our BAs at nearly the same time--were the first college edumacated folks in the family! Hell, I'm not even the first atheist.
