He was my second cousin twice removed [C2R]; and only 24 years-old.

    • Hello, Dearie (perhaps I should say, “Hullo, Cousin?”)
      As I encrypted in the post title, Floyd is a C2R, Cousin Twice Removed.

      I do better with pictures, but I cannot put them in this area; it’s only for comments.
      So, I hope you can follow along.

      Starting with Floyd > his mother, Ida Maud (MAW) ROSS > her mother, Alice (ATKINSON) MAW >
      her brother, Thomas ATKINSON II > his son, James Walker ATKINSON > his son, James Henry ATKINSON >
      his daughter, MY MUM! > then me!

      *Looks at the list above and ponders*
      Yep, the chart looks WAYYYY better!
