William Mortensen Vaughan is, apparently, the ninety-six times great grandson of the Biblical
Adam, descended ninety-eight generations from him.

According to Genesis, Chapter 5, God created man and called him Adam. This chapter also traces Adam's lineage nine generations, down to Noah, as follows:

Adam's son,
Seth (one generation from Adam)
Enos (two generations from Adam)
Cainan (three generations from Adam)
Mahalaleel (four generations from Adam)
Jared (five generations from Adam)
Enoch (six generations from Adam)
Methusaleh (seven generations from Adam)
Lamech (eight generations from Adam)
Noah (nine generations from Adam)

According to Anno Mundi,
Noah (nine generations from Adam) is probably known in Greek and Roman mythology as Uranus; his son,
Ham (ten generations from Adam), as Cronus; and Ham's son,
Mizraim (eleven generations from Adam), as Zeus.

Greek mythology traces Zeus/Noah's lineage six generations, down to Priam, the Last King of Troy, since it was sacked, circa 1,180 B.C.:

Dardanus (twelve generations from Adam)
Erichthonius (thirteen generations)
Tros (fourteen generations from Adam) (for whom the City of Troy was named)
Ilus (fifteen generations from Adam) (not to be confused with his Uncle Ilus, Dardanus' first-born son, who died childless, before Erichthonius)
Laomedon (sixteen generations)
Priam (seventeen generations).

Priam and Hecuba had a daughter, named
Troan (eighteen generations from Adam). She married
Munon (also eighteen generations from Adam), a.k.a. Memnon. They had a son named

Thor (nineteen generations from Adam) - perhaps the mortal inspiration for the Norse god.

In the Prose Edda, Snorri Sturlosson says that Thor, a.k.a. Tror, and
Sybil (also nineteen generations from Adam), had the following descendants:
Loridi (twenty generations from Adam)
Einridi (twenty-one generations from Adam)
Vingethor (twenty-two generations from Adam)

William Mortensen Vaughan's pedigree, according to FamilySearch.org, indicates that Loridi had a son named
Einridi Loridesson (twenty-one generations from Adam), who is, presumably, the son of Loridi mentioned above, with the following descendants:

Wingether Vingethorsson Einridisson(circa 135 B.C. (twenty-two generations from Adam)
