FamilyFinder match detected between Ralph, Lorna and William HENDERSON where Lorna and William are both 4th cousins once removed to Ralph.
Most recent common ancestor (MRCA) is the family of Robert RICHARDSON and Margaret RUNCIMAN.
The inherited DNA involved may belong to RICHARDSON or RUNCIMAN or FAMILTON or SHIEL, with the latter potentially having a cousin marriage to account for the survival of traces down the generations.
Both Ralph and Lorna would love to swap family information.
Particularly love to find family connections from the Scottish Borders and eventually prove that at least some of the RICHARDSONs from there are indeed related.
