In notice # 379, Jim Morrison was reported as my 8th cousin through our MRCA Anna Maria _________ (1675-1700), the proposed 3 times great grandmother of Mary Ann Allen (1836-xxxx), my great great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor in that lineage. Now besides the lack of a surname and 5 generations on my lineage to research, this might cause me to Light My Fire to research. But, back in notice # 219, Jim was reported to be my 8th cousin, once removed, through a different MRCA, Joshiah Thayer (1670-1728), the great great grandfather of Esther Clark, my 4 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage. #379 tracks Jim’s lineage through his father; # 219 tracks through Jim’s mother. The #219 lineage seems to be the way I will approach first – the line in question stays within the single surname of Thayer.
