Examples of descendants in a Sentence

  1. George Washington:

    [T]he policy or advantage of [immigration] taking place in a body (I mean the settling of them in a body) may be much questioned; for, by so doing, they retain the language, habits, and principles (good or bad) which they bring with them. Whereas by an intermixture with our people, they, or their descendants, get assimilated to our customs, measures, and laws: in a word, soon become one people.

  2. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    The one who helps his neighbor helps his descendants.
