Aaron Burr – can this get me tickets to Hamilton?


Aaron Burr is reported to be my 5th cousin, 7 times removed through our MRCA, John Bigge (1560-1605).  That should get me tickets to Hamilton in the seventh row back from row 5?  John Bigge is the reported great grandfather of Hannah Betts (1652-1688), my 8 times great grandmother, and the furthest documented ancestor I have on that lineage.  This was We’re Related report # 359.  Earlier, in report # 122, Aaron was reported as my 3rd cousin, 8 times removed.  Now, eight rows back from row 3 seems to be closer to the stage!  In # 122, our MRCA is Andrew Ward (1597-1660), the 3 times great grandfather of Nathaniel White (1749-1828), my 5 times great grandfather and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  The two reports cross for cousin Aaron at his parents: # 122, his father, Aaron Burr, Sr, (1716-1757); # 359, his mother, Elizabeth Edwards (1732-1758).  So, if I flash a screen shot of We’re Related to the ticket box, will I be able to score those tickets in row 11?  Seems only right,  I’m a Cousin!
