So ‘Melanie’ wasn’t spam, but indeed is my second cousin once removed, and found me via ye olde interweb. How cool is that? On my line, and if you take a look at Sheptree you will see this, Elizabeth is the end of the line for me, moving on, so that’s quite exciting, to see another branch of the tree…

Hi Thomas,

A bit far fetched I know, but we share (I’m sure) Soloman & Sarah POWNEY, You go down through John Powney and my line goes through James Powney (then his son John,then his daughter Elizabeth, Edward powney, Frederick Herbert, Winifred, Nadine then myself).
My Mum is your sixth cousin thats how I become once removed

Don’t suppose you would know if Soloman had any siblings?
What sort of paperwork have you got regarding Soloman (if any)?
Have you any other POWNEY contacts?

PS, My own Family Tree maker works the KINSHIP out, Otherwise I would never be able to work out beyond brothers and sisters!
