A professional genealogical researcher discovered that Hillary Rodham Clinton had a great-great uncle, Remus Rodham, who was hanged for horse stealing and multiple train robberies in Montana in1889. The only known photograph of Uncle Remus shows him standing on the gallows.

When a reporter asked about Hillary Clinton's great-great Uncle Remus, her spokesman responded:

'Ms Clinton's great-great uncle, Remus Rodham, was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory, well know for his extensive railroad connections. In 1889, Remus Rodham passed away during a civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.'
