The Family Tree of Tim Tebow, Quarterback of the Denver Broncos

If you know me well, you know I have a hobby of picking up and researching random celebrities' family trees. I've previously researched and posted about Aaron Rodgers, quarterback of the Green Bay Packer and also Lady Gaga.. far many more not publicly posted about. So when I began researching into Tim's family, I was pleasantly surprised at the wealth of information I was able to find.

 I began with some public data: his name, date or birth and the names of his parents. I was able to easily find the marriage record for his parents (12 Jun 1971 in Alachua County, Florida) and then found the birthdays for both of his parents from the Public Records databases on Ancestry.com. Knowing that Tim's father was a Junior/II, I figured finding Tim's grandfather under the same name would be easy enough.. and boy was I right! What I found when I entered their full name (Robert Ramsey Tebow) was Tim's grandfather's application into the SAR.. the Sons of the American Revolution! You can find the images to the left (part 1) and below (part 2). These two documents hold a wealth of information that Tim's grandfather knew and had researched, obviously with the help of the publication "The Hayes Family, Origin, History and Genealogy", by Royal s. Hayes. Tim's grandfather had researched his roots back to the Revolutionary veteran, Captain Joseph Hayes.

Have you researched into Tim Tebow's ancestry?
What interesting things did you find? :)
