The short version:

Pamela D. Lloyd was born to a witchy alien fortuneteller and a mad scientist. A sock salesman once tried to buy her in exchange for two suitcases of socks and they were later offered an entire house, but her parents, not knowing when to cut their losses, held out for more, only to get stuck with her. It’s no wonder she turned to writing fantasy and science fiction. It was either that, or take over the universe, and the keys to the spaceship had fallen down a rabbit hole.

Comments about the short version:

As strange as it may seem, this bio is actually pretty accurate. My mother suffered terribly from allergies and often claimed that these were due to her being from another planet. She also, for friends and family only, read tea leaves, earning her the nickname Madame Luigi, and my father printed up a certificate for her that identified her as our family's official resident witch. My father, on the other hand, is an organic chemist. He's also quite a character, very eccentric in his own way, and so has earned, to my mind at least, the approbation mad scientist.

A sock salesman really did approach my parents, on the streets of Chicago, with a suitcase full of socks and offer to buy me; when my parents turned him down, he said he had a second suitcase (the two making up his entire inventory) and would give them both. Needless to say, they turned down this offer, as well. While my parents thought this a funny story, I find it quite intriguing, and often wonder if he ever found a child whose parents were willing to take him up on the offer.

When I was two months old, we moved to Lake City, Florida, where, while house shopping, they were offered a house. My father has commented that it was a very nice house, far better than they could otherwise afford. But, once more, they turned this offer down.

I, now, among a variety of other occupations (genealogy being only one of several interests) write speculative fiction. Taking over the universe doesn't really hold much appeal for me—too much work! But, I wouldn't mind taking a ride on a spaceship or falling down a rabbit hole!

Global Family Reunion (GFR)

On August 7, 2014, WikiTree reported that I was 28 steps away from AJ. On October 1, 2014, the number of steps had dropped to 26.

Here's the path, as reported by WikiTree's Connection to AJ tool on August 7, 2014:

AJ Jacobs and Pamela Lloyd have had 28 degrees of separation:
AJ Jacobs -> Ellen Kheel (his mother) -> Jane Kheel (her sister) -> John Stanley (her husband) -> Everett Stanley (his father) -> Grace Garrett (his mother) -> Sophia Thompson (her mother) -> Greenbury Thompson (her father) -> Chloe Redman (his mother) -> Nancy Redman (her sister) -> Lloyd Benton Prather (her husband) -> Basil Prather (his father) -> Aaron Prather (his father) -> Martha Sprigg (his mother) -> Sarah Sprigg (her sister) -> Katherine Graves (her mother) -> Thomas Graves (her brother) -> Thomas Graves (his son) -> Robert Graves (his son) -> James Graves (his son) -> William Graves (his son) -> Middleton Graves (his son) -> Matilda Herrington (his wife) -> Isaac Herrington (her father) -> John A Herrington (his brother) -> Isaac Newton Herrington (his son) -> Inez Minerva Herrington (his daughter) -> Winston Lloyd (her son) -> Pamela Lloyd (his daughter)

Notice how the path has shifted by October 1, 2014, with the connection on his end now being through AJ's mother's brother's wife, instead of his mother's sister's husband, and the connection on my end shifting from my father's mother to his father. What this means is that I'm related to AJ through multiple lines—which is true of all of us, by the way:

AJ Jacobs and Pamela Lloyd have 26 degrees of separation:
AJ Jacobs -> Ellen Kheel (his mother) -> Robert Kheel (her brother) -> Shirley Dungan (his wife) -> James Dungan (her father) -> Erastus Dungan (his father) -> David Dungan (his father) -> Lara Dungan (his father) -> Joseph Butterworth Dungan (his father) -> Josiah Dungan (his father) -> Benjamin Dungan (his father) -> James Dungan (his father) -> Thomas Dungan (his father) -> William Dungan (his brother) -> Deborah Dungan (his daughter) -> Joseph Large (her husband) -> Elizabeth Large (his sister) -> Thomas Lundy (her son) -> Reuben Lundy (his son) -> Israel Lundy (his son) -> Rachel Hughes (his wife) -> Joel Hughes (her brother) -> Ellen Hughes (his daughter) -> Samuel Hughes Lloyd (her son) -> Elmer Bruce Lloyd (his son) -> Winston Lloyd (his son) -> Pamela Lloyd (his daughter)

According to, I am only 23 steps away from AJ (just count the arrows in the following path). Here's the path, based on Geni's calculations (which haven't shifted at all between August 7 and October 1):

Arnold Stephen Jacobs, Jr. is Pamela D Lloyd's first cousin 6 times removed's wife's uncle's wife's fifth great nephew's ex-wife's nephew!
Pamela D Lloyd (Me) -> Winston Dale Lloyd (my father) -> Elmer Bruce Lloyd (his father) -> Samuel Hughes Lloyd (his father) -> Ellen Hughes (his mother) -> Joel Hughes (her father) -> Eleanor Lee (his mother) -> Eleanor Ellis (her mother) -> Mordecai Ellis, Sr. (her brother) -> Nehemiah Ellis (his son) -> Sarah Thornburgh (his wife) -> Benjamin Eli Thornburgh (her father) -> Thomas Thornburgh (his brother) -> Martha Stanley (his wife) -> Micajah Stanley (her brother) -> Mahlon Stanley (his son) -> John Stanley (his son) -> Wyatt Stanley (his son) -> John Richard Stanley (his son) -> Everett Edward Stanley (his son) -> <private> Stanley (his son) -> <private> Kheel (his ex-wife) -> Ellen Jacobs (her sister) -> Arnold Stephen Jacobs, Jr. (her son)

You'll have noticed that the two connection finders start from different directions. WikiTree's starts with AJ and works it's way to me, while Geni's starts with me and works it's way to AJ. One thing I find interesting is that one path goes through my mother's father, and the the other through his mother. Looking from AJ's direction, I see that both paths connect to AJ through his mother's sister's ex-husband's father before diverging.

As an aside, almost all my connections to random people (that is, people with any fame or notoriety) are through my father. I simply haven't got enough information about my mother's family.

Today, I learned that my connection to AJ is now two degrees closer, with only 26 steps. Lloyd-391 22:47, 1 October 2014 (EDT)

One profile at a time I am updating the biographies of the people whose profiles I manage. Today, I updated the profile for my maternal grandfather, which means I have posted biographies for my parents and each of my grandparents. I still need to fix the sources to remove all the GEDCOM extras and to use EE-approved formatting, but after more than a month away from WikiTree, I'm very happy to have made such a good start. Please do drop by and see what I've written for my grandfather's bio at

Hi Pamela,

That's great you started a Lloyd Project! There are so many projects I need to get started in the One Name Studies and the One Place Studies... just not enough time in the day! I haven't even uploaded all my ancestral lines yet, so I have huge branches of my family still missing. I'm a little OCD about getting pictures and sources up. If a profile has my name on it, I want to make sure it's as complete as I can make it before moving on, but it takes time! ;-)

Hi Pamela,

With Walter Hungerford as our common ancestor, we are 17th cousins, once removed. ;-)

Just wondering how you happened on my uncle Hank Scrivens' profile? Not a relative, are you? Thanks for the kind words.

Hi Pamela. Regarding the Boykin merge, it looks like it was completed Boykin-11 back on March 19 by Trudy. Somehow the pending merge wasn't removed. So, I was removing the bogus pending merge.

Well, that's a surprise! I found an abandoned and orphaned profile with my name and no other information. After checking G2G, I merged the profile with my own, as I saw recommended. Now, my user ID has changed to that of the other profile. I guess I should have noticed that would happen, but I didn't.

Does this change anything? Will other users still be able to find me? Hopefully, all links on WikiTree that pointed to or from me still do!
