Media Swoons Over Jenny Horne's False Granddaughter of Jeff Davis Claim
Poor "Jenny from the block", she had a menopausal meltdown after confessing that she is a descendent of ... wait for it ...... Jefferson Davis, ok?
"I'm sorry," she said at one point in her four-minute speech, "I have heard enough about heritage. I have a heritage. I am a lifelong South Carolinian. I am a descendant of Jefferson Davis, OK? But that does not matter. It's not about Jenny Horne. It's about the people of South Carolina who have demanded that this symbol of hate come off the Statehouse grounds."
Of course Horne's claim to Confederate President Davis is a pretty far reach, related maybe, descendent not likely. Davis had but one child that married, add three maybe four generations and well nah this doesn't true up. But I could be wrong.
According to the above chart Jenny's parents would be named Webb, Young, Hayes-Davis or Hayes. Her father named Anderson and her mother I'll guess is none of the above. Could one of her grandparents be Webb, Young, Hayes-Davis or Hayes? Doubtful.
In other words she lied and main stream media sucked up her lie as if it was gospel.
Again I might be wrong and indeed Jenny is descended from the loins of Jefferson Davis himself. If that's the case then she has a right to be quilt ridden, otherwise she's just a menopausal nutbag.
In fairness to Ms. Horne, she probably doesn't understand the difference between being a descendant and just being related.
But that doesn't keep main stream media from saying "descendant of Jefferson Davis makes impassioned tearful plea to take down the confederate flag"
Which means we live in a world of nonsensical lies and mistruths.
Cedar Update: There may be hope for the Jenny Horne claim to Jefferson Davis yet, as her mother Cynthia Anderson uses the middle initial W could is be that her mother's maiden name is Webb? Of course that would require that she was born in Colorado.
Cedar Update: Horne now admits she's not a descendant of the famous Southern icon Jefferson Davis. Now claiming that her grandfather told her so, but that she never researched the claim. Her effort to walk-back the tearful claim is a little late, a Wikipedia page has been created promoting the claim. And seriously if your grandfather told you that you were even remotely related to Jefferson Davis or even Abe Lincoln wouldn't you research it just a little?
