Maria Shriver – and the rest of the Kennedy Klan …


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.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
