John Brown – a smolderin in his grave …


In this second go around from We’re Related, I am told John Brown is my 7th cousin, 4 times removed through our MRCA, Robert White (1558-1617), 6 generations beyond my documented 4th great grandmother, Esther Clark.  That’s going to be a lot of reseach to prove that connection!  This was notification # 341.  In the earlier, # 16, We’re Related has a much closer connection to our MRCA, Samuel Chapin (1598-1675) in my 6th great grandfather, Moses Hitchcock who is only 3 generations away from the MRCA.  This notice shows us as being 6th cousins, 4 times removed.  This also traverses a different line for both John and myself.  John’s lineage in # 16 is through his father, Owen Brown.   The lineage in # 341 traces through his mother, Ruth Mills.  My #16 follows the Munn line; # 341 follows the Clark line.   Another potential double cousin relationship and for John, a possible his own cousin.
