I have to agree this results has also puzzled me. There has always been the
thought that Thomas 1735 could possibly have been a cousin, but the other
Moses line is pretty well documented (unless there was an "in family"
adoption which we are unaware of) so I assumed this was a probably mutation.
It sure gives us another possibility to look at, doesn't it? Thanks for all
of your support.
