All of Thorin's company except Bifur, Bofur, and Bombur are Durin's descendents. [In reply to] Can't Post

If memory serves: from the incomplete family tree Tolkien provides, it appears the line of succession among dwarves alive at the time of The Hobbit is Thorin, Fili, Kili, Dain, Thorin III, Balin, Dwalin, Gloin, Gimli, and Oin. At the end of LOTR, six of these ten are dead, leaving Thorin III, Dwalin, Gloin (briefly), and Gimli.

Dori, Nori, and Ori are more distant cousins.

Turning to the question of who today would be descended from Aragorn: I thought I read recently that the space of a few thousand years is enough time for everyone on earth to be descended from the same person.
