Maria Shriver is reported in # 396 as my 9th cousin, through our MRCA, Esther Ballard (1632-1717), my documented 8 times great grandmother. Cousin Maria’s lineage is traced through her mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver. This would make Eunice my 8th cousin, once removed. This would also apply to Eunice’s brothers: Robert Kennedy and President John F. Kennedy. The President appeared in report # 244. So, if the Kennedy lineage to Grandmother Esther Ballard is correct, this is an actual relative. Grandmother was married to Joseph Jenckes, Jr. (1627-1716). One more generation would take this back to Joseph Jenckes, the inventor.
