e e cummings is reported to be my 6th cousin, twice removed, through our mrca, mary white (1675-1740). mary white is supposed to be my 7 times great grandmother. to date, i have evidence to confirm to my 4 times great grandmother, esther clark, in that line. so, three generations need to be investigated and documented. on the up side, “cousin e e” has a straight line pedigree reported without any of the usual pesky private entries.
