I knew that Gail Borden (1801-1874) (inventor of condensed milk -> Borden Milk Company) was married to Penelope Mercer (1811-1844) my 1st cousin 4x removed. While reading about him I found a mention that he was distantly related to Lizzie Andrew Borden (1860-1927) .. the famous Lizzie Borden, who was charged with killing her father and step-mother with an ax in 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts.
Curious I entered her ancestry into my Family Tree Maker until I got to Richard Borden (1595-1671) common ancestor for both Lizzie and Gail. Through the magic of FTM I can now say ..
Lizzie Borden was – my 4th cousin 2x removed of husband of 1st cousin 4x removed.
