Sorry to say I'm not a blood relative of Senator John McCain.    What an incredible man.   The contributions he made to this country surpass political lines and will never be forgotten,    

May this most Honorable Soldier Rest in Peace

Wow. That's neat, David.

I am not genealogy- related but we have 25 degrees of connection. It looks like his Fletcher and Atkins ( Mississippi ) needs more research.

It's not often that the Irish branch of the family is the deepest. Especially the Coddington side, but there are other bits that could be added eg:

On the English side the Garsides should be easy enough if we can be certain who Margaret's mother was.

John and I are related -- we share a 10th Great grandfather through the Ayer line.

Have to go way, way back (15th Century) but we were 16th cousins twice removed if the uncertainties in the evidence are ignored. Common ancestor is  Joan, the daughter of John Tiptoft KB .
