Betts told the Boston Globe last year: ‘I saw on television that they were getting married. But I had no idea we were related … That’s not something you expect to hear, but it’s interesting.’
An 1870 Federal Consensus reportedly shows that Joseph Betts is Mookie’s great-great grandfather and Jacob Betts – who lived two doors down from Joseph – is the great-great-great grandfather of Meghan.
Genealogist Jim McNiff, who uncovered the link, believes the chances of coincidence are minimal due to the scarcity of Betts’ in Madison County and the proximity of the neighbours.
