8 Times Great Grandparents Die 1 Year Apart

328 years ago, on 10 September 1690, Elnathan Botsford passed away in Milford, Connecticut.  He was my 8 times great grandfather, the son of Henry Botsford and Elizabeth Woolhead.  On 12 December 1667, he married Hannah Baldwin also in Milford, Connecticut.  One year to the day from Grandfather Botsford’s passing, Grandmother Botsford passed away, 10 September 1691, in Milford, Connecticut.   Two of their children would become my ancestors: Samuel (30 July 1670 – 14 November 1745) who married Hannah Camp was my 7th great grandfather.  His sister, Hannah (30 April 1674 – _______) who married John Prindle was also my 7th great grandmother through their daughter, Hannah who married her first cousin Samuel Botsford, Jr., the son of Samuel.

Confused?  I think this means I can be my own family reunion since I am my own cousin.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
