Donny and Marie –


It took three days between, but We’re Related figured out for the first time that if I was a 9th cousin of Marie, I must also be a 9th cousin of Donny.  The reports also use the same MRCA, Thomas Deane (1639-1697), the proposed father of my 7 times great grandmother, Lydia Dean (1679-1726) and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.   I have been looking for evidence of Grandmother Lydia’s parents for a while since there are a number of reports that claim Thomas as her father, but everywhere I have sought they just claim it without citation!   Time for a number of persons to take a class from Elizabeth Shown Mills!

This report was grouped as # 394 since the both siblings were so closely reported.   But, a number of months ago, in report # 85, Marie was reported as my 9th cousin thought MRCA, John Hitchcock (1642-1712), the proposed grandfather of my 6 times great grandfather, Moses Hitchcock (1717-1768) who is the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  Both connections come through the Osmond paternal line, splitting off at their great grandparents, Tyesha Ann Beeler (1843-1929) #394 and Isaac Hawk Vail (1831-1871) # 85.

So, if I can authenticate either, maybe I can score some comp tickets on my next trip to Vegas?
