George Washington – my leaf shook, too!


President George Washington was in report # 366 as my 6th cousin, 7 times removed through our MRCA, Johun Waters (1524-1556), the grandfather of Henry Peck (1649-1732), my 9th great grandfather and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that line.   The lineage for cousin George goes through his father, Augustine.  But, this is the second report I have had of President Washington.  In report # 29, he was reported to be my 3rd cousin, 9 times removed, through our MRCA, William Ball (1573-1647), the great great grandfather of Lois Pond (1690-1730), my 7th great grandmother and the furthest ancestor documented in that lineage.  This match goes through, Mary Ball, George’s mother.  I guess the worst part is that it means I must be a cousin to that woman on the Ancestry commercials as well …..

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
