Thomas Wolfe – and the beat generation continues……


Thomas Wolfe, my projected 5th cousin, three times remove, through our MRCA, Anna Schumacher (1654-1724), the grandmother of John Shaul (xxxx-1790), my 5 times great grandfather and the furthest documented ancestor in that lineage.  Since the SH construction is not a German construct, the name was changed by John from the original Schall — not sure why he would have done this and gone Biblical, but he did.

Of interest is that We’re Related also calls out Anna as the MRCA in defining my 8th cousin, twice removed relation to President Barak Obama.


About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
