Lucille Ball — Lucy, there is not a lot of splainin to do …


We’re Related reports that Lucy is my 8th cousin, once removed, through our MRCA, Edward Smith (1636-1693)!  This tracks through my documented line!  Lucy’s lineage is through the much documented Sprague family.  This happens to be We’re Related #344!  Cousin Lucy also appeared in report #8, also as an 8th cousin, once removed. In #8, our MRCA was Mehitable Holbrook, my 8th great grandmother.   Lucy’s pedigree still goes through the Sprague family, but instead of splitting off at her 5th great grandmother, Sarah Smith and tracking two more generations to Edward, #8 continues with her 5th great grandfather Hezekiah Sprague for two generations to Mehitable.  So, Cousin Lucy, proof the tree has talent and quite a bit of zany — apparently times two!
