Black Friday....a different meaning in my family history!

Black Friday coming and now a days it is associated with the big shopping day the day after Thanksgiving. But in my family has a different meaning.
You see my Grandmother Iva use to always tell us who we were related too.
As an adult and since working on our family histories and genealogy I have worked to prove some of those stories she told us.
One was that we were related to Jay J Gould of Black Friday, (different meaning), fame or infamy!
We are cousins to him actually but still he is related whether we like it or not.
Actually from the photo of him when he was younger he was kind of a cute guy!
