Maternal relationship to mother Agnes marked as confirmed by DNA because of Triangulated Group (TG) on Chr 01 between three "cousins", one descended from John and Agnes' son Adam, one from their son Walter, and one from Agnes' paternal uncle David. A fourth "cousin" in the TG cannot be compared with the descendant of David but is expected to also match.
