Prescott Bush — father of the dynasty?


Prescott Bush, the father of George H. W. Bush, is reported as my 7th cousin, 3 times removed, through out MRCA, Thomas Harris (1605-1686), the great grandfather of Dinah Harris (1702-1796), my 6 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor I have in this lineage.  This is report # 414.   We’re Related, a number of months ago, in report #187, said we were 8th cousins, twice removed, through our MRCA, John Holbrook (1610-1699), the father of Mehitable Holbrook (1649-1719), my 8 times great grandmother and NOT the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  My documentation shows that Grandmother ‘s father was William Holbrook (1620-1699), not John.  So, I need to review and verify what is going on in both.   I wonder how long before the notices on George H.W. and George W. trickle in and who will be called out as our MRCA.
