I'm 19 degrees also. But what I noticed was that my connection to both her and Jimi Hendrix involved my Jeter ancestors, so I used the Connection finder for the two of them and they are 18 degrees apart with only ONE marriage link in the path.

I am 14 degrees from Janis Joplin with one marriage in the Fears-Porter line. I think I am surprised as I thought I would be way more degrees as I am the other Rock Stars!

These connections are really neat. We are 18 degrees apart through a Mowery connection (Sarah Mowery's marriage to Senator Robert Hanna). We are also 12th cousins twice removed, as we are Winthrop descendants. (I am a Fones descendant, she was not.)

10th cousin (on my father's side), with the common ancestor being a bloke called John Drake (1585-1659).

And an 18-degree connection.

Yes, 16 degrees.  We share a common ancestor on my Abney line.

My Father was her 7th Cousin.

I had no idea this relationship existed, I should check my DNA results against others listed on Janis's profile.

I am 17 degrees from Janice Joplin. We are 8th cousins. This does not surprise me. She's from my grandfather's side, the Hawkins, and his family  were  Appalachian Old Timey Musicians. Appalachian old timey music is disappearing if not already.
