Dick Cheney – part 2


For the second time, We’re Related has let me know that Dick Cheney is my cousin – this time, my 8th cousin, once removed through our MRCA, Elizabeth Bond (1656-1729), the 3 times great grandmother of Esther Clark, my 4 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.   This was notice # 403.

Way back in notice #126, Cousin Dick was my 9th cousin through our MRCA, Thomas Lewis (1633-1709), my 8 times great grandfather and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  In other words, a match!

For Richard Bruce Cheney, the two split at his 3 times great grandparents, # 126 – Rachel Emerson (1781-1863), and # 403 Joseph Fletcher (1777-1861), the parents of Lucy Fletcher (1803-1845).
