Edgar Allen Poe – Nevermore?


Edgar Allen Poe showed up for a reprise in We’re Related as #339 (7th cousin, 3 times removed) with MRCA, Elizabeth Woodhouse (1612-1666), the great grandmother of my furthest documented ancestor on that line, my 6th great grandmother, Dinah Harris (1702-1796).  The original notification, #25 (6th cousin, 5 times removed), called out the MRCA as Matthew Fuller (1603-1691), the 5th great grandfather of my furthest documented ancestor on that line, my 5th great grandmother (I love her name!), Thankful Isham (1752-1834).   #25 and #339 meet in Edgar’s lineage at his great grandparents:  #25 Elizabeth Weekes (1731-1752) and #339 Thomas Carnes (1731-1795), the parents of Edgar’s grandmother Elizabeth Carnes (1756-1835).   Unfortunately, We’re Related seemed to ignore the part about Elizabeth being born FOUR YEARS AFTER HER MOTHER DIED.

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.
