Interesting thesis. I know that I recently identified a 9th cousin (common
ancestor is John of Rowley) and we match 24/25. My uncle matches 25/25
with three other men and the common ancestor - Deacon Samuel Wright - is
also in the early 1600s.
Hey, when we Rice/Royce's do mutate, different lines even mutate in parallel! I have a perfect 37/37, incorporating my one mutation from the old immigrant. We were told that we had to be close kin! After many months, we could find no connection other than descending from different sons of the original immigrant. So, I undertook a project to determine just where my mutation first took place. That is where I found it, first showing up in my great grandfather, the last of "the three travelers" of my line. My brother, first cousin, second cousins all have it, while my third and fourth cousins do not. No connection with this other guy any closer than those different sons, (born in the 1630s, virtually right at the time of the immigration) of the first immigrant.
Robert Royce's sons, I descend from Nehemiah and he from Jonathan. Now, the odd thing is he has started testing close relations and is finding new mutations as well! Must be time again!
