Ben Hogan – par 3 for 7th, once removed


Hard to believe based on my golf ability, but Ben Hogan is purported to be my 7th cousin, once removed.  I always joked that between golf and bowling, if I were allowed to flip the scores, I could be a champ in both.   My line is documented through my 4th great grandfather, Samuel Lane (1766-1845) – then three more generations (hence the par 3 comment above) to the MRCA, Pretitia Tydings (1680-1734).  Cousin Ben’s line is complete (meaning no PRIVATE entries) and includes one of my favorite ancestor names: Silence Lane.  So, one more for the TO DO list!
