Notice # 405 from We’re Related tells me that Anthony Perkins is my 8th cousin, twice removed, through our MRCA, Lot Conant (1624-1674), the proposed great great grandfather of my 5 times great grandmother, Thankful Isham (1752-1834), the furthest documented ancestor I have in this lineage. Now, besides the great names: my all time favorite, Thankful, and now a new one Lot, there is a lot of work to prove this connection. And with Lot at the top of the heap, I would be concerned with turning back once I started. We know what happened to Lot’s wife!!!
Speaking of Lot’s wife (not the Biblical one, the one in #405), she was reported as the MRCA in Notice # 139 a number of months ago. Elizabeth Walton (1629-1674) is assumed to have been married to Lot Conant. The lineages reported for both Anthony and me are identical in both reports.
At least the two reports agree with each other. That is progress. And the research has more connections now that I have both Lot and Elizabeth!!
