I think you may be the closest cousin, David.  This is a great question, btw.

Greta and I are 11th cousins, both descended from Matthew Howard (Anne Arundel, Maryland) on my parent's side but I'm 22 steps from her on my husband's side.  One big happy family!

Hi Kathy! Nice to meet you! Is Anne Arundel your ancestor that we are related to Matthew Howard through?

How are we 22 steps on your husband's side?
Anne Arundel, Maryland is one of those early settlements.  Many of the Anne Arundel settlers came from Jamestown, but I think Matthew Howard came from England.
Me too.  Greta is my 10th cousin through Greta's Matthew Howard, Osborne, Dixon lines. Matthew Howard came from England (parentage unknown) and first settled in Virginia and then migrated to Maryland.
Very interesting. Glad to learn something new about my ancestors.
Hi cousin James! You are probably related to Kathy too.
Yes, Kathy would also be my 10th cousin through Matthew Howard.

Hi cousin Susan! :)
Howdy, Greta. Old John had two daughters, one was Priscilla Ann and the other was Ann -- you are desc from Priscilla Ann and I from Ann ... I'm a tad dubious about why Priscilla is Priscilla Ann and the other one is Ann and wonder if they are the same woman; or whether Priscilla was really Priscilla Ann or just Priscilla; or ... but someone else has that research project in their future LOL
That's interesting, Susan. Sounds like it could be the same woman but it needs to be researched.

Wow - how cool! We're 13th cousins - sharing James Samson as our g-something-grandfather. And we're 20 steps apart, so I guess I can't beat 16.

Hi Scott! Nice to meet you! I believe our relationship to James Samson is also a connection to Henry Samson from the Mayflower.

Hi David! Nice to meet you! That's pretty cool! I love discovering ancestors and cousins. I will have to post my cousin relationships to my free space page.

Which ancestor of mine are you 16 degrees from?

Greta and I are supposed to be 13th cousins once removed, me through my maternal line. I can confirm with documents back to Tirzah (Biggers) Hinson. Beyond that, it's speculation but ... Howdy, Cousin!

Hi cousin and fellow greeter, Debi! I'm not sure that the Inman line is correct on my maternal side but I know that part of it is for sure.

10th cousins once removed (Uncertain)

Connection Finder has us at 18 degrees (no Uncertain flags that I know of).

Hi cousin Liz! We are both descended from Gilbert Elam Sr. Elams' are a line I'm researching. My great great paternal grandmother was an Elam.
cool! Elam is a "new-to-me" family... an Elam daughter possibly said to be mother of Charles Gee (the Gees are another new-to-me family). I do love how WikiTree keeps introducing me to family - ancestors and cousins!
I love that about WikiTree too!!! :)

We're 12th cousins through Matthew Howard, and I'm 19 steps. I always try to get closer during the week. : )
