Political dynasties

There's all sorts of talk and complaints about political dynasties, what with Caroline Kennedy possibly getting CLinton's Senate seat, and Biden's son getting his.

There's been a lot of political dynasties in the U.S. Families where multiple member from multiple generations held office. The Longs, the Kennedys, the Roosevelts, etc.

I'm trying to think of any that last longer than three generations and I'm drawing a blank. Anyone have an example of a 4 or more generation political dynasty?
