Reese Witherspoon Linked to Declaration of Independence, NARA Says

Ancestor John Witherspoon one of 56 signers

July 30, 2003

By GirlsNewsDaily.com staff


A Hollywood blonde is a direct descendant of one of the original signers of the country's "charter of freedom," the United States' national record keeper recently said.

Actress Reese Witherspoon is a direct descendant of John Witherspoon -- one of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence -- according to an announcement last month from the National Archives and Records Administration.

The National Archives noted that John Witherspoon is pictured in a Barry Faulkner Mural, entitled “The Declaration of Independence,” which illustrates 28 delegates to the Continental Congress of 1776.

Reese Witherspoon was recently noted as one of VH-1's top 200 icons. She is the star of the feel-good series Legally Blonde.
