My connections to him are through my Delay and Farney ancestors.  I'm also the 9th cousin cousin, four times removed, from his wife, our common ancestor being Adam Winthrop.

17 degrees.

Apparently Frederick Douglass' second wife, Helen Pitts, is a distant cousin (4th cousin, 6 times removed) of my ex-wife.

18 degrees here. No known relation, but apparently descendants of the same Helen Pitts married into families that married into families that lead to my mothers maternal line.

I'm not, but I know a number of descendants are active on wikitree. I hope they enjoy having their ancestor's profile featured!
