: the Duchess of Windsor

Thomas Jefferson once wrote "How boring it is to spell a word only one way."

The "Sinclair family connection" is via Priscilla Harden is the mother of
Upton Beal Sinclair..Both genealogies are readily available.

The assertion that : the Duchess of Windsor was a Sinclair is just plane

I had misspelled it the original message on 4 Jun 2001 21:11:57 +0200 when I
wrote "Not only are you related to the writer Upton Sinclair you also have
Australian relations that are much closer than  the Shetlands.  Your history
according to the US Navy glows. One of your forbearers has the American Gold
star, twice! Wallace Warfield Simpson, Duchess of Windsor has a branch on
your tree."

My spelling is appalling!
