Bing Crosby – White Christmas ?


Cousin Harry (aka Bing) might be a bit more than 7 times removed or not.   I looked at the lineage for my ancestors that was provided.  I can document back to my 5th great grandmother, Thankful Isham (1752-1834), but it requires 5 more generations to leap back to our MRCA, Abigail Howland (1629-1692).  That’s a lot of research just to be able to watch Holiday Inn and say – “Oh ya, that’s cousin Bing with George Clooney’s aunt. ”   But, to take from Grandma Isham’s name, I am thankful to have a clue as to next steps in the lineage trail.   There are two generations of Fuller and two of Young before I get to Grandmother Howland.
