From separate family histories left by my grandmother and grandfather, who came from early Kansas and Oklahoma pioneers, with much collaboration I've traced my history through early colonial immigrants, and English and European nobility, back 1800 years. Still looking for that Mayflower ancestor.

Bob, do you happen to speak any other languages? Would you check out our languages template and add it to your biography? For example you might add

{{ Languages | en | fr-2 | ga-1 }}

to the top of your biography if you speak English natively, intermediate French and basic Irish, or you could use de-4 to specify near-native German or ru-1 for basic Russian, and so forth up to ten languages.

It really helps to know who speaks all the different languages used on WikiTree! If you only speak English, you're very welcome to use this text to make that clear:

{{ Languages | en }}

Thanks,

Karen

Hi Bob,

I just stumbled onto a profile under notables that is listed as private. A message from you dated 1 year ago requests it be open and it's still closed. Any chance this can change since profile manager unresponsive?

I figured it out. We are 7th cousins 1xr and share TWO common ancestors. Abraham Stover is one, and Richard Mills is another. It's really interesting ....my 3x ggm Lena Carter is a great great granddaughter of Hur Mills, and her husband Joseph Stover is the 3x great grandson of Abraham Stover. Yet, you and I do not share any DNA segments over 7cM. I match tons of other people on Ancestry, from both lines. But not you! This makes me want to pull my hair out!  :D

So apparently, Mills-340 is our common ancestor. However, I've noticed we also seem to be connected on the Stover line. Interesting!!! Because...my 3x ggm (Carter-15254, the descendant of Mills) married a Stover-1000, whom you don't seem to be connected to even though you are DNA connected on up that line too. This is crazy!
