In all seriousness I'm sort of distantly related through marriage. I have an uncle (married to my father's sister, my aunt) whose last name is Fortenberry. He's originally from Mississippi. I recall him mentioning a few times when I was a kid that he was related to Elvis, 2cnd cousins or something like that (I think my uncle's mother was related to Gladys). He did not say this in a bragging manner, just sort of matter-of-fact. Lo & behold, years later in one of the Elvis books that gives his family tree I ran across the name Lillian Fortenberry!

That's pretty awesome Pete.

You may be very well related to him somehow!

Bet it was a huge feeling when you found that name in the book.

My folks always joked about being Elvis' cousin becuase of the Mansell name.At the Elvis meetup I attend two other people claim to be cousins and they are dead serious about it.One of them even have a customized plate on their car that states it.I have lived in So Carolina for several years now and I would say that 1/3 of all residents here claim to be Elvis' cousin.

For me, there's almost no doubt you're related to Elvis.

Elvis didn't want anybody to know this (not even his father) so it was kept a secret, until now.

My mother became pregnant of me from a guy named Andreas, who left for the USA.

Combine these two facts and Elvis was my younger brother.

Same here through marriage - VERY distant but enough to feel chuffed on a superficial level. I'm from Ireland originally but my younger brother moved to California a few years ago and married a girl who was Mexican or half Mexican. Her mother can trace a direct route to the Cherokee Indian part of Elvis. I can't remember it exactly and I was pretty dubious when they first told me but they were able to name names that I knew which a non fan wouldn't know plus they have no reason to make it up, they're not the type either.

I am pretty sure I am related to Elvis.

His Mom's maiden name is Smith.

That is my last name too.

So, I have to be related somehow!!

It's obvious!!!! :D

Actually, I'm the result of a fling he had with my mama while he was on tour in April 1972.

He and mama never spoke after their "run in" back in April 72, except for when she wrote him and told him about me. He finally made a late night visit to see me back in late 1976, and I'll never forget the words he said to me....."Boy, don't you ever go messin' around those Stanleys without any money"
