I looked up Harry Lord on Geni and they have him as a descendant of Nathan Lord (1656-1733), who is my 8th Great Grandfather.  The connections haven't been made here, but this would be a good project for me to work on.

That's wonderful!  He was my father's sister's father-in-law, or my cousins' grandfather.
I saw the name Lord and his Maine origin and figured he had to be related to me somehow.
Harry Lord and I are not blood related, but you and I are 9th cousins!

Thanks, Isara. That is great! Every notable person we connect may be some family's claim to fame :-)
