Meg Whitman as my 9th cousin through our MRCA, Edward Smith (1636-1693), my 8 times great grandfather. This was report # 411 from We’re Related. Many months ago, in report # 170, Ms Whitman also showed up as my 9th cousin; this time through our MRCA, Nathaniel Mowry (1644-1718), also my 8 times great grandfather. (Remember we all have 1,024 eight times great grandparents which will give us 512 grandfathers at that level). The two cross at Edward’s daughter-in-law, Mercy Mowry (1680-1741) in Meg’s lineage and at Mercy’s sister, Patience (1682-1734) in mine. Proving once again, that the 1600s had a lot of close family ties.
