When I recently read that Karen Black had died at the age of 74 [read obituary and career summary here], I had the vague recollection that the Aschliman family had claimed her as some sort of relative. My hunch was that it was via the Heller clan, so I contacted the font of all family knowledge, my cousin S Man, and here is what he had to say:
"Tom Foy was married to my sister Loretta. Tom is a first cousin of Karen Black. Their mother's were sisters. Tom and Loretta's kids would be blood relatives of KB, and since you and I are blood relatives of those kids, we are blood relatives of blood relatives of Karen Black. She was at my sister's wedding way back when, though only a teenager at the time and definitely not a celebrity."
So there is your daily dose of nearly worthless trivia!!
