Joan Crawford is # 402 in We’re Related in a strange reporting as my 9th cousin. It is strange because it calls our our MRCA as Barnabas Fuller (1659-1738). My line follows down through his son, Samuel Fuller (1681-1758). Cousin Joan, Lucille, follows down through his son, Samuel Fuller (1681-1758). Hence, strange reporting does appear. This would imply our MRCA would be Samuel, not Barnabas, and that we were 8th cousins, not 9th. My documentation only goes through Samuel’s granddaughter, Thankful Isham (1752-1834), so I still have two generations to document to get back to Samuel.
Many, many months ago, in Report # 117, We’re Related let me know I should be drinking Pepsi and not using wire hangers as well. But, in this report, Joan was my 8th cousin, twice removed through a MRCA, Susannah Ball (1622-1677). Susannah was the reported grandmother of my furthest documented ancestor in that lineage, Lois Pond (1690-1730). So, through either direction, I still have work to do. So until that day, I guess I will stick with Coke.
