Hamilton Prioleau Bee – 6th cousin, 5 times removed — or maybe not


We’re Related provided complete pedigree lines for both Hamilton and me all the way to our MRCA, Henry Burt (1595-1662).   But there is a problem, I have John Munn, the son of Benjamin Munn, the son of John Munn in my line.  I have evidence through Benjamin Munn.  We’re Related proposes the mother of the elder John Munn was  Abigail Burt (1623-1692).  Now the mother of the younger John, and the wife of Benjamin was also named Abigail Burt.  Coincidence?  I don’t think so.  I think there may be some untangle work ahead of accepting this as a true related cousin.
