It's a Small World - No 2

Yesterday I was browsing my blog feeds on Feedly when I came across this post - Got Rid of Two Husbands. Imagine my surprise when I realised that the post was about the wife of a man in my extended family. I already knew about the two husbands and had read another newspaper story about the incident. However, this story gave credence to one fact that I was unsure of. The child in the story belonged to the first husband. The Mad Genealogist and I are 4th cousins once removed.

  1. Sharon, I wonder if we share this realtive. I cannot find any convicts, but we do have one murder (husband shot wife-other side of the family tree). Prehaps it was the hard times they lived in - although there is never an excuse for violence against another.
