Zachary Taylor – triple threat!


President Zarhary Taylor appeared for the third time in a notification from We’re Related.  This time, #376 has him as my 6th cousin, 6 times removed, through our MRCA, Elizabeth Bodenham (1538-1636), the grandmother of Mary Moulson, my 9th great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor in this lineage.    A few weeks ago, Zach was in # 351 as my 5th cousin, 6 times removed through out MRCA Elizabeth Godfrey (1570-1680) who gave birth to two daughters with the same name, 52 years apart.  I cast a bit of shade on this report!   Then there was # 62, where Zachary was reported as my 5th cousin, 8 times removed, through our MRCA Jane Phippen (1580-1650), the 4th great grandmother of my 6th great grandmother, Bethiah Younglove (1721-1768), the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.   For Zachary, all three claim to follow his mother’s lineage.  # 62 and # 351 cross at his maternal grandparents, Sarah Bayly (1720-1774) in #62 and William Dabney Strother (1726-1808) in # 351. Then, # 62 and # 376 cross at the parents of Sarah Bayly, Samuel Bailey (1691-1727) [note change in surname spelling as well] in # 62 and Elizabeth Baker (1690-xxxx) in #376.  All in all, cousin Zach, I am not ready to enter you into my database.
