James Monroe – Doctrine and all …


Second notice from We’re Related has President James Monroe as my 6th cousin, 6 times removed through our MRCA, Margaret Jones (1539-1555), the great grandmother of Thomas Lewis (1630-1700), my 8 times great grandfather, the furthest documented ancestor I have in that line.  This was notice # 404.

Well, many months ago, We’re Related notified me in # 136, that President Monroe was my 7th cousin, 4 times removed through our MRCA, John Lawrence (1519-1590), the great grandfather of Isaac Lawrence (1652-1731), my 7 times great grandfather and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that line.

The two reports cross at President Monroe’s Grandparents: # 136 has Hester Davis (1685-1762), and # 404 has James Jones (1700-1742) and then up their respective lineages.

Unfortunately, in my lineage, I have documentation that shows the father of Thomas Lewis (1630-1709) was George Lewis (1600-1664) not Edmund Lewis (1601-1650) as reported in #404 by We’re Related.  So, if I were to look into this this discrepancy would be at the top of the list of “Things to Resolve”.
