Summer Road Trip of 2013 Day 8 -It's Family Day

I want to show y'all some relatives of mine.....albeit distant relatives or relatives by marriage.


I have a direct ancestor named Mary Hunt.
Mary Hunt was born 15 May 1695 and died abt. 8 Mar 1763.
Mary is my 7th great grandmother on the maternal side of my family.

By her third marriage after she was widowed twice, she has connected me to a slew of famous and esteemed persons in our country's early history.  She never had any children by her third husband so I am not blood relation to any of these people, but am related through marriage.

Here is the wife of the brother-in-law of my 7th great grandmother......



Here is the brother-in-law of my 7th great grandmother.....


 


Here is the 3rd great grandfather of the husband of the niece of the husband of my 7th great grandmother....

And  this is the 3rd great grandmother of the husband of the niece of the husband of my 7th great grandmother.....



This is the nephew of the husband of my 7th great grandmother.....or would it be the step nephew of my 7th great grandmother.....


My 6th great grandmother(Mary Hunt's daughter by her second husband), was also the cousin-in-law(or would it be half cousin or step cousin?) of that man.

This is the 3rd great grand niece of the husband of my 7th great grandmother........


And here's the husband of the 3rd great grand niece of the husband of my 7th great grandmother.....



 I point all this out because today on our Great Summer Road Trip of 2013, I'll be visiting the childhood home of the 3rd great grand niece of the husband of my 7th great grandmother......


She became somewhat of a controversial women of her time in history.

    1. They probably are the only ones with good teeth or all their teeth.

  3. Is this a test? Am I supposed to know the names of all the people pictured? Where is the answer sheet so I can fill in the ones I think I know? How long do I have to finish?

  4. Oh my! I am sooo confused! I thought I was lucky to get back to about 1830 in County Clare, Ireland! Very cool that you have such a complete history!

    Glad the trip is going well.
    Peace <3

  5. You are so good at researching. Have you ever thought about making money doing it for others?
