I realize week to week that closeness does not always = relatedness. This week, I've found that 4 of our inventors are also related:

1) John Patch: 15 degrees, and 5th cousins 6X removed through MRCA Rebecca (Taylor) Adams

2) Arthur Ganong: 18 degrees, and 17th cousins 6X removed through MRCA Cecily (Breightmet) deBarton

3) John Harington: 19th cousins, and 5th cousins 16X removed through MRCA Alice (Tilney) Skipwith

4) Lance de Mole, 25 degrees, and 16th cousins 3X removed through MRCA Isabella (Herbert) Clifton

Other connections by degree include:

Josephine Cochrane: 21 degrees; Otto Frederick Rohwedder: 21 degrees; Emile Berliner: 24 degrees; Ferdinand von Zeppelin: 25 degrees; Herman Snellen: 27 degrees; Nicolas Appert: 42 degrees; and Alfred Cralle: 54 degrees

Thank you Connection Finders!
