Yeah, apparently it is actually through his mom. John Punch had a son (also named John Punch) with a white woman (apparently not so uncommon in those days before institutionalize slavery). President Obama's mother is descended from that second John Punch. This is all according to the ancestry.com people who have been researching his lineage for the last two years. Apparently they like to research the heritage of famous people in order to get people interested in genealogy so they will take a peek at their own family histories.
