Johnny Cash – man in black, yellow and orange!


Report #425 has Johnny Cash as my 9th cousin through our MRCA, Magdalena Essig (1615-1680), the proposed 5th great grandmother of my great great grandmother (and current brick wall) Mary Ann Allen (1836-xxxx). The surnames imply a need to dig through German church records — not a major task as long as the LDS church has been there!!

Many months ago, in Report # 27,  cousin  John showed up as a 9th cousin, once removed, through our MRCA, Elizabeth Kinsey (1615-1714), the proposed 3 times great grandmother of my 4 times great grandfather,Samuel Lane 1769-xxxx) – also a brick wall.  This lineage appears to be British instead of German.  For cousin John, both are for his father’s line.

I guess I might need to walk a couple of lines!
