Clarence LeRoy Stanford
died 60 years ago today in 1950 at age 56  Clarence is the boys' 1st cousin 3 times removed.  First cousins are of course the offspring of a parents sibling. exempli gratia (e.g.) your fathers brother's child is your first cousin no times removed. 3 times removed means that the common ancestor would be your 3rd great-grandparent's children.  Let's trace this one.  Clarence's father is James Isaac Stanford, the boy's 2nd great-granduncle.  James Isaac's father is the boy's 3rd great-grandfather, David Stanford.  But in this case I guess it would be 1/2, 1st cousins because The boys' line goes through Margaret Jennie Stanford, David Stanford's daughter born to Nancy Ann Kenley, David's second wife.  James Isaac Stanford, Margaret's 1/2 brother was born to David Stanford and Amanda Jane Kenley, David's first wife.  That's clear, right?
