President Franklin Pierce – 6th cousin, 6 times remove — double sixes!


Franklin Pierce as my sixth cousin, six times removed, was the #345 report from We’re Related.  This time our MRCA was Ursula Alice Dimery (1596-1665), the 5th great grandmother of my last documented ancestor in that line, my 4th great grandmother, Esther Clark.  That leaves 7 generations to research and verify!  Earlier, in notice #13, Cousin Franklin was reported as my 6th cousin, 5 times removed, through our MRCA, Mary Heath (1594-1629), the mother of my furthest documented ancestor in that line.  Mary Johnson (1614-1679), my 9th great grandmother was supposed to be the daughter of the MRCA.  Definitely, less generations to research in this case!  For Franklin’s lineage, # 13 and # 345 meet at his great grandparents, #13 – Abigail Bowen (1700-1775) and #345 – Caleb Kendrick (1694-1771), the parents of Benjamin Kendrick (1724-1812).
