Roy Orbison – cousin, maybe for real.


Roy Orbison is supposed to be my 9th cousin, once removed though our MRCA, Catherine Charlet (1623-1670).  The closest I can prove is my 4th great grandmother , Mercy Simons (1779-1804).   That leaves 5 generations to Ancestry / We’re Related conjecture.    I can see a lot of research before I will be able go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and claim kinship.
