Brad Paisley – – yo, cousin?


# 424 reports that Brad Paisley is my 8th cousin, once removed, through our MRCA, Hannah Brown, the great great grandmother of Abner Cummings (1802-1848), my 3 times great grandfather, my brick wall, the end of my documentation in that lineage.

But, many months ago, We’re Related also informed in on # 252 that Brad and I were 10th cousins, once removed, through our MRCA, William Ballard (1603-1689), my 9 times great grandfather.  I would have staked this out as a definite except Brad’s lineage has his 8 times great grandfather marked PRIVATE — really!  Privacy concerns for someone who has been dead since the early 1700s!   So, if Mr. Private ever shows himself, I might move Brad the the actual Cuz column.
