Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. – jury is out.


The famed jurist, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., is reported to be my 6th cousin, 6 times removed.   I can follow the lineage reported for me through my 5th great grandmother (love the name), Thankful Isham (1752-1834).  But, it requires 6 additional generations to get to our reported MRCA, Hannah Howse (1594-1634).   That is going to be a lot of hours!  And would a Supreme Court argument accept less preparation?    Another TO DO item!
