Per relationship finder: Cherie Sharp (Sharp-1739) is 5th great granddaughter of this person - Summer Orman (Binkley-335) is 6th great grandaughter (through disputed daughter Bathsheba) - Summer and Cherie are a DNA match of 13.1 cM on Chromosome 17 (40,595,864 to 52,183,294) at 2,351 SNPs, indicating 5 generations to MRCA. This is consistent with the paper trail. How interesting!
