The Making of Mitt Romney
The Boston Globe
While Mitt Romney's family fled Mexico, another family descended from Miles Park Romney has remained in the area. In this photo, Mike Romney stands in his living room in Colonia Juarez, leaning on an organ that was brought to the town through the insistence of Hannah Hood Hill Romney, who was the great-grandmother of both Mike and Mitt Romney. 'I would not part with our organ,' Hannah wrote in her autobiography, recounting how she once offered to walk in order to make room for the organ in a wagon. 'We found it a source of refinement in raising our children.' Mike Romney said he has never met his cousin Mitt, but thinks he would make a good president.
