Richard Gere – 347 bad lineage, 60 8C1R


We’re Related report # 347 gives a clean lineage for me to our MRCA, Edward Smith (1636-1693), whom I have documentation showing as my 8th great grandfather.  Richard’s lineage leaves a bit to be desired in that it reports his 4th great grandmother, Orpha J Hawkins (1750-1793) was born 9 years AFTER the death of her mother, Mary Smith (1705-1741).  In the earlier report from We’re Related, our MRCA, Mehitable Holbrook (1649-1719), my documented 8th great grandmother, is clean on cousin Richard’s lineage with no post-death births.  So, yes to #60;  serious doubt on the validity of #347.
