Halle Berry — or not


Halle Berry is supposed to be my 10th cousin.  Our MRCA is reported to be Elizabeth Walton (1629-1674).  The closest I can get is my 5th great grandmother, Thankful Isham (1752-1834) who is 4 generations removed.   On a side note, I really like her name, Thankful.  They just don’t make names like that any more.  Then there is that not pesky Ancestry PRIVATE MALE that the put in as the link from Cousin Halle’s line to 9 times great grandmother, Elizabeth Walton.  Now this person was born in the 1600s!  What is so private about his information?   Leads me to doubt the validity of the rest.  Too bad…
