Voldemort'd descended from Cadmus, and Harry's ancestor is Ignotus. Merope Gaunt is also a descendent of Salazar Slytherin, and Harry's not Slytherin's heir. If the Boy who lived were descended from SS and IP, SS's blood would flow in both lines. Yet sice Harry's not descended from Slytherin, the Peverell brother preceeded the Founders by at least two generations. Cadmus had at least one child with his girlfriend. This child could've married SS's parent.

Cadmus Peverell is one of the three brothers who were the initial owners of the Deathly Hallows. Cadmus, as the middle brother, was the owner of the Resurrection Stone which recalled the dead (in his case his lover) until he realized the limitations of the stone, and killed himself to join the woman he loved in death. Though Dumbledore presumed it much more likely that Cadmus merely created or enchanted the stone rather then receiving it from Death, with the tale coming into being given the abilities of the stone (along with the Elder Wand and Invisibility Cloak). The stone was then passed along through his family until reaching Marvolo Gaunt. Tom Marvolo Riddle would later steal the ring that held the stone from the Gaunts and turn it into a Horcrux. Cadmus was a direct ancestor of Tom Marvolo Riddle.

It is unknown who or how Cadmus passed on the ring to the next heir, since the woman that he wanted to marry died before he could ask for her hand.
