President John Adams – 3 time hit!


I received my THIRD notification from We’re Related that President John Adams was my cousin – #361, # 349, and #3.  In addition, his son, President John Quincy Adams appeared in # 292 which called out a lineage through his father.  In #361, John is my second cousin, eight times removed through our MRCA, John Bass (1630-1716), the 3 times great grandfather of my 4 times great grandmother, Esther Clark, the furthest documented ancestor in that line.   In # 346, John is my 6th cousin, 7 times removed, through our MRCA, John White (1550-1618), the 5th great grandfather of Thankful Isham (1752-1834), the furthest documented ancestor I have in that line.  The two meet at John’s parents: # 361: his father John Adams (1691-1761); # 349: his mother, Susanna Boylston (1708-1797).  John Quincy Adams was reported along the lineage that leads to John Bass.  In that lineage, his father, President John Adams, was given as PRIVATE!.   In # 3, John Adams is reported as my third cousin, 8 times removed, through our MRCA, Henry Adams (1583-1646), the four times great grandfather of the same Elizabeth Clark as in #361, but this lineage goes through her father and # 361 goes through her mother.  Spaghetti anyone?
