Johns Hopkins – can I find a doctor?


With Johns Hopkins as my 5th cousin, five times removed, I should be able to garner some priority in a medical emergency. Shouldn’t I?  And, yes, his parents decided that his name should be JOHNS not JOHN.  He inherited it from his great grandmother, Margaret Johns, who also had named his grandfather Johns Hopkins.  As far as my pedigree from We’re Related goes, it is a bit suspect.  There is a PRIVATE FEMALE that leads to a female names Presocia that leads to the MRCA, Thomas Sparrow (1620-1717) — I wonder if Capt. Jack Sparrow will appear in a future notification.  Looks a bit shady.  The Hopkins line is fairly clean up to the MRCA.  So, possibly, with a lot of work, this too can be fleshed out.
