J. Paul Getty — Oil and Money — can I get a loan, cousin?


We’re Related # 408 shows J. Paul Getty as my 7th cousin, 3 times removed, through our MRCA, Johann Christ (1610-1674), the 5 times great grandfather of my great great grandmother, Mary Ann Allen, the brick wall in that lineage documentation.  Earlier, in report # 160, our MRCA was declared to be the son of Johann, Hans Christ (1638-1690).  Both reports repeat the lower lines, there is just disagreement as to whether Adam Christ (1668-1754) in J. Paul Getty’s lineage is the son of Heinrich Christ, the brother of Hans, or the actual son of Hans.  Obviously, someone had issues in reading the German church records and defining who was who or the issue of the first name versus the call name.   Either way, I was not named in the will, so I will just back burner this on my list of things TO DO.
