Sorry, but I did not get your attachment. Please send it again.

The Colin Powell family tree says that Colin was the son of Maud Arial
McKay (1902-1984) who was a descendant of Sir Eyre Coote (1760-1823) and
Sally, a Jamaican Slave. Sir Eyre Coote was a descendant of Chidley Coote
who was a descendant of Thomas Duke of Glouchester who died in 1347. He was
the son of King Edward III who was a grandson of King Edward I.
