Kissing Cousins

A few days ago I shared with you my evolving interest in genealogy and a genealogy book entitled “The Bowser Family History”.  Yesterday I discovered a second connection to Mathias Bausser, Sr., and I discovered that my great grandparents, Daisy Ethyl (Johns) and Lewis Harmon John, are “kissing cousins”.

First Connection

 

Mathias Bausser, Sr. (8th great grandfather)

Mathias Bausser, Jr. (7th great grandfather)

John Bausser (6th great grandfather)

Julia Ann Bowser (5th great grandfather)

Sarah Flenner (4th great grandmother)

David Cousins (3rd great grandfather)

Sarah Emily Cousins (2nd great grandmother)

Daisy Ethyl Johns (great grandmother)

Estella Mae John (grandmother)

Second Connection

 

Mathias Bausser, Sr. (7th great grandfather)

Mathias Bausser, Jr. (6th great grandfather)

Elizabeth Bausser (5th great grandmother)

John John (4th great grandfather)

John J. John, Jr. (3rd great grandmother)

James M. John (2nd great grandfather)

Lewis Harmon John (great grandfather)

Estella Mae John (grandmother)

My Mother

Myself

My great grandparents are cousins because siblings, John Bausser and Esther Bausser, married into my family. Lewis and Daisy John share a common grandfather. Mathias Bausser, Jr. is Daisy’s 5th great grandfather. He is Lewis’s 4th great grandfather. Lewis and Daisy are 5th cousins 1x removed. They are 6th cousins 1x removed also because Mathias Bausser, Sr. Is common to both of them. Mathias Bausser, Sr. is my 8th great grandfather, when tracing my ancestry from my great grandmother. When tracing my ancestry from my great grandfather, Mathias Bausser, Sr. is my 7th great grandfather.

I still need to trace my paternal family tree. My paternal ancestry is found in “The Bowser Family History” genealogy book as well.
