WHAT WILL YOUR HERITAGE BE?

An investigation into the famed 18th

century revival preacher Jonathan Edwards (1703-58) showed that, of the 1,394

known descendants of Jonathan Edwards, 100 became preachers and missionaries,

100 lawyers, 80 public officials, 75 army and navy officers, 65 college

professors, 60 physicians, 60 prominent authors, 30 judges, 13 college

presidents, 3 United States senators, and one a vice-president of the United

States.

Another man of that era, Max Jukes, had 310 descendants who died as paupers,

150 criminals, 100 were drunkards, 7 were murderers, and more than half of

the women were prostitutes.
