  • Notes  Married:
    • JSHJr notes: E. D. Davison and Desiah Mack are also 1/2 first cousins once removed.  Their common ancesotr is Desire Cahoon.  Desire Cahoon (m1. Samuel Mack in 1766)  is Desiah Mack's Great Grandmother.  Desire Cahoon is also E.D. Davison's Grandmother (m2. Patrick Doran in 1785).  So that means that ED and his wife had about 1/32 of their genes in common - the equivalent of a marriage between second cousins. (The medical risk to offspring of second cousins is not increased vs the general population)
