Of those, it would seem, based on what you describe, that you fall into line of either the Universalist Quakers or the Non-theist Quakers. Is that correct?
    No. I'm unique.

    Well, I think that's pretty in line with the Universalist Quakers then.

    A lot of Quakers don't even necessarily associate with those sub-theologies. I am definitely not part of the Universalist Quaker society.

    My family's Quaker roots are older and go back Wales during the English Civil War, America's founding and later abolition and suffrage.

    Lucretia Mott was my great grandmother, who was cousin to Ben Franklin, making him my cousin as well (though Ben was not Quaker). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucretia_Mott

    Lucretia's grandson was the father of American geography, William Morris Davis, my great grandfather, who spawned a whole family of famous anthropologists and archeologists. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Morris_Davis, including one of Arkansas' most famous, Hester Davis (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hester_A._Davis), and one of the most endearing Massachusetts humorists who ever walked the University of Massachusetts, Hugh Davis (https://www.umass.edu/newsoffice/art...ritus-regional, inventor of the very famous fake town of Ripton,MA). Their other brother, E. Mott Davis, was one of most respected archeologists in Texas history (https://sites.utexas.edu/tarl/2018/0...-e-mott-davis/). I could not possibly pigeon hole any of them into one major Quaker society (which again, isn't even as common as you might think).

    Their sister, my grandmother Penrose Davis, drew Japanese ships for Navy training manuals in WWII, and that's how she met my grandfather Eugene, whose work is archived in the Smithsonian Institute. Also CIA veteran of 27 years, but I don't know much about that other than what's been written in books. From there, you get me, the son of a trauma nurse and a naval ordnance chief.

    Yes, I left a few greats out. But I'm very proud of this family history, especially the parts where we fought slavery and injustice. Which is why I carry on.

    I won't ignore any questions. If I miss one, just point it out. Otherwise it's not ignored, it's just waiting to be answered.

    That's not an answer. But, yeah, he should know, what with the stickiness and such.

    He asked "Who's Dave"?

    Honestly, I thought he knew who Dave Humm was. Maybe I'm projecting.

    Does he really not know Rock Ape's true name? Dave used to sign his posts all the time.

    That's pretty interesting. It's cool to have a rich family history. I currently live in Florida where my family settled before the state was a state. One of my great grandfathers was Andrew Jackson's Indian interpreter.

    But on the other side of my family, we were so poor that everyone just assumes that at one point the Georgia clay started walking and thus my family sprung up. Good people though. Up until my Grandfather joined the Navy, no one had more than a 3rd grade education and made all their money running moonshine. When my Grandfather joined the navy, he was issued the first pair of shoes he ever owned.
