Sam Peckinpah – last picture show?????


Sam Peckinpah showed up as my 7th cousin, once removed, through our MRCA, Annetje Verlerk (1684-1754), the proposed great grandmother of Mary Shimel (1760-1835), my 4 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  I do have a concern that We’re Related is showing the next generation after Annetje as Jan VanDyke(1709-1777) and John VanDyke (1709-1778).  My initial thought is that these are the same person Jan = John.  Each have a daughter Elizabeth (1730-1796) and Mary Elizabeth (1734-1796).  Also, possibly the same person.  So, Fifth cousin instead of seventh?  Anyway — a lot of work to untangle this double double.
