The Missing Link

Well, not exactly missing, but a link anyway. And it did make a good subject intro.

The mature mother in this picture is Frances Tyson (1844-1927) beside her is her husband James Kuykendall.
They are Anna's ancestors. Beside them could be a possibility combination of two of her ten children, or one of her children and one son-in-law or daughter-in-law. It looks like the young female may be "in a family way".

Getting back to Frances Tyson Kuykendall: We already said she is Anna's progenitor. Frances grandparents were Eugene Haraves/Job Tyson (1798-1868) and Frances Eliza Portress Herring Tyson (1799-1878), which were not only Anna's ancestors, but also mine.

I had an earlier entry about Eugene Hargraves Tyson and his sister Winston who was near-by when the Cotton Gin was invented.

Because of common ancestors that makes Anna and I 3rd cousins, once removed.

We didn't know this until I got reserching my family tree and Anna's mother was searching Anna's father's family tree, and we bumped heads.
