Mitt Romney – 9th cousin, this time

File Oct 05, 12 11 19 PM

Willard Mitt Romney now calculates to be my 9th cousin on We’re Related # 336.  He was 8th cousin, once removed when reported on # 26.  What is the difference?   Well, in my reported lineage, #26 goes up the White lineage line from 4 times great grandmother, Prudence White, four generations to our MRCA, Elizabeth Savage, 1655-1742.   In #336, from Grandmother Prudence, we use the lineage of her mother, Mehitable Morey (1737-1814) and meet at the MRCA, Elizabeth White (1643-1707).   For Cousin Mitt, the diversion occurs at his great grandparents.  #24 traces lineage of his great grandfather, Charles Edward Robison (1845-1883).  #336 traces the lineage of his great grandmother, Rosetta Mary Berry (1843-1918).  Now, #336 tracks to my documentation on my lineage all the way to our MRCA; in #26, I still have two generations to research and document.  Due to the Romney family focus, I have to believe, the lineage provided is correct.
