NOTES




16 -- There were two different men named Mounce Gore, uncle and nephew, living in Tennessee and dying in the 1840s. The older was born in 1794, and the younger, born around 1810, is the ancestor of Al Gore.

The name "Mounce" is unusual, but a clue to its origin is indicated by the name of the younger sister of the older Mounce Gore, namely Ingabo Gore, born in 1796. Mounce and Ingabo's father, John Gore (number 64, above), had a brother, Isaac Gore, who married Ingabo Byrd, daughter of Mounce Byrd (d. 1793), who in turn was a son of Andrew Byrd (d. 1750) and Magdalen Jones, daughter of Mounce Jones (MÃ¥ns Jonasson, 1663-1727) and his wife Ingabo (Ingeborg Pedersdotter Lyckon, 1663-after 1727), emigrants from Sweden to Pennsylvania. Note that Al Gore is not descended from these Swedes.

Mounce Gore Butler (1849-1917), U.S. Representative from Tennessee (1905-1907), is presumably related somehow.



1090 and 1091 -- Other descendants of George and Alice Maris include:


George Maris m. Alice ----
Richard Maris m. Elizabeth Hayes
Joseph Maris m. Ann Shipley
Elizabeth Maris m. Enoch Taylor
Hannah Taylor m. Samuel Laycock
Mary Ann Bonsell Laycock m. Isaac Cody
William Frederick Cody, alias "Buffalo Bill".

Vice President Al Gore is a fifth cousin four times removed of "Buffalo Bill" Cody.



Further descendants of George and Alice Maris include:


George Maris m. Alice ----
Elizabeth Maris m. John Mendenhall
Aaron Mendenhall m. Rose Peirson
Lydia Mary Mendenhall m. Joshua Mendenhall
Jemima Mendenhall m. Thomas Vickers
Martha Vickers m. William Milhous
Joshua Vickers Milhous m. Elizabeth Price Griffith
Franklin Milhous m. Almira Park Burdg
Hannah Milhous m. Francis Anthony Nixon
Richard Milhous Nixon, President of the U.S.

Vice President Al Gore is an eighth cousin once removed of Richard Nixon

FURTHER NOTES

Several persons have claimed that the author Gore Vidal is related to Al Gore. While it's true that all of us are related, it doesn't appear that Al Gore and Gore Vidal share any traceable Gore ancestors.

Eugene Luther Vidal, Jr., alias "Gore Vidal", was born in Washington, D. C., on 3 October 1925, the son of Eugene Luther Vidal and Nina Gore, daughter of Sen. Thomas Pryor Gore, U.S. Senator from Oklahoma 1907-1921 and 1931-1937 by his wife Nina Kay. The National Cyclopedia of American Biography, in Vol. XXXVI [1950], on p. 22, says that Sen. Thomas Gore was a son of Thomas Madison Gore and Caroline Elizabeth Wingo, a grandson of Ezekiel Fletcher Gore and Mary Green, a great-grandson of Thomas T. Gore and Nancy Sanders, and a great-great-grandson of James Gore, who came from Ireland about 1775 and settled in Frederick County, Maryland.

As shown above, Vice President Al Gore's immigrant Gore ancestor was John Goare of Middlesex County, Virginia, who arrived before 1677. If there was any connection between James Gore and John Goare, it would have to have been before they emigrated (separately) to North America, but their origins are (currently) unknown.
