Do any of you come from a place that is/was the home of someone famous?

Both of these guys graduated from the same high school as me, albeit quite a few years earlier.

Colonel David G. Burnet, who was the interim President of the Republic of Texas in 1836 and 1841, also resided in my hometown in the 19th century. Colonel Burnet was the namesake of my junior high school, which is now a middle school.

Artie Lange, who is a sidekick of Howard Stern on his radio show, is also from Union.

Crown Princess Masako of Japan (the one who can't seem to produce a male heir) went to my high school (before my time). For a while there would be bus loads of Japanese tourists driving through our town to view the school and her house.
