Abigail (Powers) Fillmore, FLOTUS

AbigailFillmore

In notification # 368. We’re Related tells me that Abigail Powers Fillmore, wife of President Millard Fillmore, is my 4th cousin, 6 times removed through our MRCA, Abigail Harvey (1665-1734), the grandmother of Abigail Crossman (1690-1767), my 7 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that particular lineage.    Earlier, in notification # 151, I was told cousin Abigail was my 5th cousin, 6 times removed through our MRCA Robert Fletcher (1592-1677), the father of John Fletcher (1606-1683), the furthest documented ancestor I have in that particular lineage.  For Mrs. Fillmore, the two lineages cross at her parents, #368 is her mother, Abigail Newland (1758-1850) and # 151 is her father Lemuel Powers (1756-1800).  Using # 151, if I can document 1 more generation, I can claim another FLOTUS!!
