Edgar Allen Poe – Quoth the Raven…

EdgarAllenPoe

OK, third report might be the clincher, or not.  Notice # 377 has Edgar Allen Poe as my 7th cousin, 4 times removed, through our MRCA Elizabeth Townsend (1596-1673), the 3 times great grandmother of Thankful Isham (1752-1834), my 5 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  Earlier, in notification # 339, EAP was reported to be my 7th cousin, 3 times removed, through our MRCA Elizabeth Woodhouse (1612-1666), the great grandmother of Dinah Harris (1702-1796), my 6 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor in that lineage.  #377 traces back through EAP’s mother.  # 339 traces back through EAP’s father.   These two reports were about 6 weeks apart.   Then, many months ago, in notification # 25, I find EAP as my 6th cousin, 5 times removed, through our MRCA Matthew Fuller (1603-1691), the the 3 times great grandfather of the same Thankful Isham.  # 25 has one big issue in the lineage reported for EAP:  it shows his grandmother, Elizabeth Cairnes (1756-1835), was born 4 years AFTER her mother, Elizabeth Weekes (1731-1752), died.  In the same notification, my lineage, the father of Samuel Fuller(1681-1758) is defined as Barnabus Fuller ( 1659-1738).  This would be Grandmother Thankful [still love that name!] ‘s great grandfather.  Unfortunately, in an earlier report We’re Related told me that this was John Fuller (1656-1726).   Now one or the other or both are WRONG.
