At first I was excited to find another pair of twins, but then I realized that my maternal grandmother, her 1st cousin, and my paternal grandfather's sister all were born on March 6. That's an interesting confluence!
Lydia and Margaret Holsinger, daughters of David Holsinger and Lydia Mack, were born March 6, 1827, possibly in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. They are my 2nd cousins 5x removed via the Macks.
Ellen Jaquett Sellers, daughter of Edwin Jaquett Sellers and Blanche Bingham Ehret, was born March 6, 1895 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. She is my 5th cousin 2x removed.
Walter Everett Gaunt, son of James Knox Polk Gaunt and Sarah Naomi Boone, was born March 6, 1897 in California, probably in Kings County. He is my 3rd cousin 3x removed.
Lillian Millstein, daughter of Nathan Millstein and Sarah Gordon, was born March 6, 1913 in New York, probably in Brooklyn, Kings County. She is my 1st cousin 2x removed via the Gordons.
Esther Lillian Gordon, daughter of Joe Gordon and Saray Libby Brainin, was born March 6, 1919 in Manhattan, New York County, New York. She is my maternal grandmother and the 1st cousin of Lillian Millstein, above.
Bertolet Grace Sellers, daughter of Laura May Armstrong and someone whose name we don't know, was born March 6, 1921 in Mount Holly, Burlington County, New Jersey. She is my paternal grandaunt.
Cheri Jane Bonifas, daughter of Charles D. Bonifas, Jr. and Jane Wilkinson, was born March 6, 1946. She is my 6th cousin once removed on my Gauntt line through the Bonifases.
Susan Emily Thomas was born March 6, 1966 in Georgia. She is my 2nd cousin once removed on my Gauntt line.
Milton Barnett and Ethyl May Votaw, daughter of Daniel W. Votaw and Louisa Gaunt, were married on March 6, 1912, probably in Indiana. Ethyl is my 3rd cousin 3x removed via the Gaunts.
Oren Wilson Clark died March 6, 1961. He was married to Anna Gaunt, daughter of Lewis Cass Gaunt and Mary A. Kindlesparger, who is my 3rd cousin 3x removed.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
