James Buchanan Eads, 6th cousin, 3 times removed, has a clean line reported for my line up to the MRCA, my 8th great grandmother, Esther Ballard (1632-1717). James’ line is as defined. So all looks well for this civil engineer, inventor, bridge designer and builder to be a real relative! As long as there is documentation to prove his lineage. Need to check that out.
About Pat Shaul
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.
