I’m related to Vonnegut, Heinlein, and Asimov only by marriage -  and oddly it’s  through the same marriage. I am 18 degrees from Edgar through our common PGM ancestor Robert Vose.

I'm 14 degrees removed.  No blood relationship, but I have a gg grandaunt that married a Zane and have done a quite a bit of work on the Zanes because of that connection.  So am now noticing that Edgar Bourroughs is a 3C1R to [[Gray-8699|Zane Grey]].  They share [[Innskeep-5|Sarah Innskeep]]  and [[McCullough-162|John McCullough]] as an ancestors.  One of Zane Grey's books was a historical novel about his g-grandmother, Elizabeth McCollough Zane-''Betty Zane.''  Actually, I think that was his first book.
