For right now I would have to say No.  Even though I'm showing that I'm related that branch of my tree is poorly sourced and I'm finding discrepancies.

This sounds like a race to see how distantly related we can be.

I've got it at 19th cousins (Uncertain).

Possible 22nd something removed.  Way out in the boonies on this one.  Related through Anna Spencer and my Warrens.

Pip, I when I checked out our possible relationship looking for a Sheppard connection,  I did not find a Sheppard connection but I did find the possible direct connection I have been looking for to the Newsome line.  Funny how one cam search high and low for years amd just fall into tje right lead.

Closest relationship in Relationship Finder is 10th cousins (marked uncertain). But there's also a relationship of 10th cousins once removed (MRCA is Matthew Fuller) that's not marked uncertain -- and on that line we share a Mayflower ancestor.      Who knew?
