Talking Re: Aikido and Samurai: a few questions

From the reading I have done Aikido and Samurai are directly related. I can't remember the title of the book but any biography of Ueshiba, Morihei should cover the following material.

When he was young, Morihei's father would tell him stories about his grandfather a prominant Samurai.

I realize the samurai class was abolished during the Meji restoration but that does not change one's linage. If his grandfather was then his father was and he and his children would be as well.
