How hot are you on the Scoville scale?

Wilbur Scoville, born 1865 in Connecticut, was a pharmacist who invented the Scoville scale for rating the hotness of chili peppers. He is descended from a long line of Scovilles including Puritan immigrant John Scoville.

Wilbur and I are 10th cousins, 2x removed, descended from John Cooke. How funny is that.

Wilbur's grandfather was the uncle of his grandmother. How creepy is that.

That is creepy!  He is my 7th cousin 4x removed through John Rayment.  I guess I am on the "hot" scale? :)
That's awesome!  The Scoville scale came up in the Weekend Chat a few weeks ago.

Wilbur and Natalie are 14th cousins twice removed (Uncertain)

Wilbur was my 8th cousin in a couple of ways. Some of our common ancestors are named Hunter, Whitbred and Belcher.  Add some hot peppers and ... is it just me, or is there a food theme emerging?

Although I found a relationship of 7C3R with him, the song by Jerry Reed is another "When You're Hot You're Hot" I can relate to.

I am his 12th cousin 3X removed.  Our most recent common relative is Roger Corbet.  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Corbet-6

13th cousins 4x removed via Robert Spencer.

No relationship found between Ebenezer Scoville and Sally (Bassett) Scoville

Try the connection finder:  

Sally Scoville is 1 Degrees from Ebenezer Scoville

Strange it wouldn't show up.

Creepy? Maybe. Intermarriage in my family was a particular talent. My pedigree collapse is rather large.

Wilbur and I are 12th cousins, 4x removed through our common ancestor Peter Hildyard, Esq. I believe that makes me fairly lukewarm on the Scoville scale! ;-)
