Stephen King showed up in We’re Related report # 373 as my 9th cousin through our MRCA Esther Ballard (1632-1717), my 8th great grandmother – fully documented! In addition, the first two generations down from Grandmother Esther in Stephen’s lineage I also have the documentation to support! So this may explain a bit of my quirkiness: it’s in the genes! Now, earlier in report # 289, We’re Related reported Stephen and I were 8th cousins, twice removed, through our MRCA Mary Jane Wilkerson (1680-1758). There were many PRIVATE entries in both of the lines in that report. In the very beginning of Stephen’s line Mary Jane apparently gave birth to when she was 8 years old! Both pedigree reports are from Stephen’s father, Donald Edwin Pollack King [King was his adoptive father’s surname], but this most recent one has a great deal more substance and I tend to believe may actually be correct if the rest of Stephen’s lineage can be documented.
