It's unfortunate that you feel that way. You say you doubt it's true, have you researched and proved this? Have you considered that those researching a connection have good reason to? I'm researching the connection for a completely different reason and know for a fact I have no family link to the James brothers. But I am looking at the Howard link to them to eliminate the lore from the connection I'm looking at. Not everyone is looking to connect just for bragging rights.
