Franklin Delano Roosevelt – a new deal?


Report # 354 has FDR as my 6th cousin, 3 times removed, through our MRCA, Samuel Bill (1665-1729).  Samuel is the projected great great grandfather of my 4 times great grandmother, Mercy Simons (1779-1804) who is the last documented entry I have in that lineage.  In report # 99, FDR is also my 6C3R, but through our MRCA, John Holton (1640-1712), the father of the furthest documented entry in my line, my 7th great grandfather, William Holton (1675-1755).  This one should be easier to add one generation of proof.  The two lines for cousin FDR, cross at his parents, James Roosevelt for # 354, and Sara Ann Delano for #99.  So I might also be the link to FDR not only marrying his cousin, Eleanor Roosevelt, but being his own cousin!
