Johnny Appleseed – 6C2R – Ahhhh Chooo


OK, so for the second time, We’re Related has told me John Chapman (aka Johnny Appleseed) is my cousin.  In Report # 397 he is my 6th cousin, 5 times removed, through our MRCA, Susan Warren (1555-1613), the proposed 4 times great grandmother of Mercy Simons (1779-1804), my 4 times great grandmother.  In notification # 105, We’re Related has us as 5th cousins, 4 times removed, through our MRCA, Elizabeth Cooke (1611-1663), the proposed mother of Isaac Lawrence (1652-1731), my 7 times great grandfather and the furthest documented ancestor in that lineage.   For John, # 105 reports through his mother’s lineage and # 397 reports through his father’s lineage.  So, I guess that will make him his own distant cousin.   Now, why the sneeze — I am major allergic to apple blossom pollen — So, thanks cousin Johnny for just planting those trees EVERYWHERE!
