Found a connection! It's a long one though, so maybe someone should shoot for a shorter one?
It should show in the calculator tomorrow, but for now here's the connecting point: Sarah Pendleton Champlin, 22 steps from AJ.
From Sarah it goes:
Her son, Adam Champlin
His son, Oliver Champlin
His son, James Champlin
His son, Orlando Champlin
His wife, Mary Mettling Champlin
Her sister, Mary Sybil Rubertus Garceau
Her daughter, Lenora Garceau Fowler
Her son, Chester Fowler
His wife, Mary Brink
Her father, Lyman Brink
His sister, Vivian Brink Olson
And her son, Stephen Fishbach - 35 steps from AJ.
