Smith Wigglesworth is a

world-wide reputation as an effective servant of Jesus Christ.
He is the 32nd Great grandson of ancient English

Southworth, my 25th cousin, eight times removed, and the first husband of Alice
Carpenter. She is my seventh great
grandmother through her second husband, Plymouth Colony Governor William
Ethelwulf (as it also is spelled) is the 39th great
grandfather of our Westmoreland grandchildren, Katherine (Katie), John David

Their father and uncle, Steve and David Westmoreland, are 33rd cousins,
