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!
