I realize that both my sister-in-law, Patti (Jacob) Hughey are both more closely related to Oliver than I am, but I am19 degrees from him connected through both of my relatives.

Naturally I am not blood kin.

Dear David,

   Oliver Holmes-2055 (Jr.) and I are 12th cousins, 2ce removed.  That is a blood connection through [[Thomas Wood-8994]].   His father, Holmes-2054, is arguably more famous. Father is 11th cousin, 3x removed.  Interesting.  -NGP
