Several interesting coincidences for this date. There are three Elizabeth Macks — one each for a birth, marriage, and death — and they're all different people. There's a man and his great-grandson having the same birthday. And two sisters married on the same day, 38 years apart.
Elizabeth Mack, daughter of Alexander Mack, Jr. and Elizabeth Neis, was born May 2, 1763, probably in Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. She is my 5th-great-grandaunt.
Mary Gaunt, daughter of John Gaunt and Jean Satterthwaite, was born May 2, 1769 in New Jersey. She is my 1st cousin 6x removed.
Clarence Allen, son of Cyrus Kunze Allen, Jr. and Clara Barton Shinn, was born May 2, 1900 in New Jersey, probably in Burlington County. He is my 4th cousin once removed on my Gauntt line through the Allens.
Dorothy Mae Gaunt, daughter of Harvey Joseph Gaunt and Jane Marie Conway, was born May 2, 1920 in Haddonfield, Camden County, New Jersey. She is my 2nd cousin once removed.
Eli Morton Amron, son of Louis Amron and Fannie Perlman, was born May 2, 1925 in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York. He is my 3rd cousin once removed on my Nowicki line through the Perlmans.
Julius Minuk was born May 2, 1929 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He was married to Esther Golub, daughter of Harry Golub (originally Golubchik) and Dora Sorin, who is my 3rd cousin once removed on my Meckler line through the Golubs.
Cheryl K. Elkins, daughter of Marvin Elkins and Ethel R. Gardner, was born May 2, 1958 in Los Angeles County, California. She is the 1st cousin once removed of my aunt Mary McStroul.

John Holsinger and Elizabeth Mack, daughter of William Mack and Agnes Gantz, were married on May 2, 1797, possibly in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. Elizabeth is my 1st cousin 6x removed.
George B. Replogle and Polly Mack, daughter of William Mack and Agnes Gantz, were married on May 2, 1835, also possibly in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. Polly married on her sister's anniversary, and since she is Elizabeth's sister , she is also my 1st cousin 6x removed.
Walter Everet Votaw, son of Daniel W. Votaw and Louisa Gaunt, died May 2, 1874 at the age of 8 months in Wabash County, Indiana. He is my 3rd cousin 3x removed on my Gauntt line through the Votaws.

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.
