The Roots of the Sexiest Man Began Here

People Magazine announced Wednesday that actor Johnny Depp is the sexiest man on the planet. According to the magazine, the 46-year-old Depp headed a list of 15, catching People's attention not so much for his swashbuckling antics in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, or his freakish charm in "Edward Scissorhands," but his softer side as a family man. "The star has had women swooning since his days as a teen detective on 21 Jump Street, yet it's his devotion to his family that really makes the actor so endearing," People gushed. Depp also won the magazine's "Sexiest" honor in 2003.

Speaking of family, it goes like this: Johnny Depp's 4th great-grandfather was Isaac Tipton Reneau, the legendary preacher of the 1800's, who is buried at Irwin Cemetery in Albany, Kentucky. His granddaughter, Mariba, married John Burks Depp. They are buried at Scottsville. Their son, Oren, is buried at Refuge Cemetery at Eighty-Eight. His son, Oren Laramore Depp, is buried at Owensboro. His son is John Christopher Depp (Betty Sue Depp Palmer). Their son is actor Johnny Depp.

Isaac Tipton's daughter-in-law, Eleanor Means, was the aunt of my great-grandfather William Ezra Means.
