It looks like she and I are "19th cousins twice removed".

LOL! :-)

Hi Cousin!  Who are we half connected through?
Aye the MacGregors "Children of the Mist".
Sorry, I don't understand the reference.

Ann Gregg was of Scottish origin, specifically the Clan MacGregor. The name of this clan was banned in the early 1600s after its members killed more than 140 rival clansmen at Glen Fruin near Loch Lomond.  Following the bloodshed, James VI, in a bid to dismantle the clan, forced MacGregors - and Gregors - to drop their name or risk punishment by death. Aliases, including Gregg, Grant, Stewart and Ramsay were used. Famous outlaw Rob Roy McGregor, born 1671, took his mother’s maiden name Campbell.  Bloodhounds were allegedly sent to track down the clans people, who became known as “Children of the Mist” as they retreated to the remotest spots.  The ban was in place for two periods, between 1603 and 1661 and 1693 and 1784.

Thanks for the background! In reviewing this line, it is really uncertain if there is a connection. Currently there are two daughters of Ann (Gregg) Houghton named Mary, one of which is unsourced (my line). I'm not even sure yet if they should be merged, or if one of the profiles just has the wrong parentage.
I'll check that out and post what I find.

Thanks for the star, cousin. Someday we'll solve the Ireland riddles.
