6th cousin, twice removed via John Mendenhall Jr. For some reason the connection finder is instead of that using a connection through the DeMoss family which is at 15 degrees.

According to Ancestry, Harry S. Truman was my 4th cousin- 4x removed. So.... my 2nd great grandfather's 4th cousin? My 2nd great grandfather was George Kennedy Pringle.

    16 degrees, 6th cousins 3x removed through Robert Tyler and Susannah Duvall (also the first time I've seen someone on the connection finder where the blood relationship path is also the shortest connection path).

    13th cousins three times removed, through our common descent from William Graham, 1st Earl of Montrose. But that comes out to 16 degrees.
