Burgess Meredith (1907-1997)


Burgess Meredith is supposed to be my 5th cousin 4 times removed – our MRCA was Philip Bill (1658-1739) who Ancestry proposes to be my 8th great grandfather.  Of the pedigree they provide, I can verify only up to my 5th great grandfather, Johnathan  Simons (1759-1847).  That leaves three generations and about one hundred years not backed with supporting citations.  So, I guess the Music Man, the Penguin, and Rocky’s Ring Coach will go into the pile of “more research required” before I really claim this cousin.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
