In notice # 389, We’re Related, has notified that President James Madison was my 6th cousin, six times removed, through our MRCA, John Hall (1540-1630), the proposed great grandfather of Samuel Hall (1644-1689), my 8 times great grandfather and the furthest documented ancestor that I have in that particular lineage. President Madison’s lineage is traced through his mother, Eleanor Rose Conway (1731-1829). A number of months ago, in notice # 76, We’re Related informed me that President Madison and I were 8th cousins, twice removed, through our MRCA, John Strong (1605-1699). This one also goes through the President’s mother’s lineage, but they name her as Eleanor Rose Catlett (1731-1829) – dates are the same. But, the line jumps around and one generation has Benjamin Phelps (1717-1761) as the father of Margaret Mason (1610-1665). Now fathering a child over 100 years BEFORE you are born is some feat! The jumble of the tree that We’re Related picked up in # 76 would explain how they think President Madison and I are only separated by 2 Generations. Needless to say, # 76 is totally BOGUS and # 389 shows some promise.
