Thomas Paine – 5C8R


Report # 374 shows Thomas Paine as my 5th cousin, 8 times removed, through our MRCA Richard Gunne (1541-xxxx), my 12th great grandfather.  This line is fully documented!  Now it is just a matter of verifying the lineage presented for Thomas.   Earlier, in report # 350, We’re Related showed Thomas as my 3rd cousin, 7 times removed, through our MRCA George Lewis (1600-1664), the grandfather of Hannah Lewis (1662-1717), my 7th great grandmother.   Unfortunately, she is not the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  I have documentation that her father was Thomas Lewis (1633-1709).   We’re Related proposed George Lewis (1625-1710).  George and Thomas Lewis may be brothers, but this negates Report # 350 as being viable.  But, #374 seems totally viable.
