Glenn Close, actress & a Taliaferro

Glenn Close

The famous actress Glenn Close is a Taliaferro (see link), a family that emigrated to the Virginia colony before the Revolutionary War.

Ms. Close has been nominated for six Academy Awards. Her grandparents were Edward D. Close (1882-1955) and Elizabeth Taliaferro (1897-1988). Glenn Close’s father was Dr. William Taliaferro Close. Velma Pauline Tailiaferro Block (1926-2011) was her 7th cousin, twice removed. I’d expect these ladies to have been only one generation apart based on birth dates.
