Yes John Cash is my 9th Cousin. So might be that we are related to each. Mine is thru the Cash Overton, backwards to my father Ernest Ledger Stephens.

As always I checked for the relationship of the husband of my Texas cousin.

He is 7C1R of Johnny Cash.

13th cousins 1R...we share Richard Thockmorton-95.

Up my Caudill family line... not surprised, also cousins to June Carter Cash and many other country artists founded in the Application Mountain region. My first cousin Harold Morrison was a famous Bluegrass county musician playing for many of the greats in the 1960's and 70s.

17 degrees from Johnny Cash, but also 12th cousins once removed on my father's side.  My father enjoyed playing some of his music on the guitar and would have enjoyed learning this.
