The interconnections of three prominent American families

Today, despite the lack of a ready news hook, we’ve mapped the interweaving of the Gilligan, Sebelius and Rockefeller clans.

In 2009, Lisa Rockefeller, daughter of Godfrey Rockefeller Jr., married Edward Sibelius, son of Gary and Kathleen Sibelius.

The bride is the great-great-great granddaughter of William A. Rockefeller Jr., brother of John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil and a whopping family fortune.

The groom comes from a long line of politicians. His mother is the current secretary of Health and Human Services and former governor of Kansas.

His maternal grandfather was a governor of Ohio and a member of the House of Representatives. His paternal grandfather, Keith Sebelius, was also a member of the House.
