While doing my family history I remembered coming across some people with the last name Braithwaite and I was pretty sure they were from Manti, or at least one of those little towns in central Utah. I said to her, "I think we might be cousins."
We then sat down, I pulled out my phone and opened up one of my genealogy apps to figure out how we were related. I showed her my connection to John Braithwaite. From the diagram below, you can see that my 2nd great-grandfather was George Washington Ivory.
- I am descended through his youngest son, Ellis Clark Ivory.
- George had a daughter named Mercie Ella Ivory.
- She married John Braithwaite.
- John Braithwaite's grandfather was Rowloand Braithwaite.
- Rowland Braithwaite's 3rd great-granddaughter is my friend!
