Fourth cousins once removed as a matter of fact. I did know this when we first married, but an article in the Williamsport Grit printed an article about 10 years after we were married. The column title was “Curriousities and Oddities”. I have no idea what the article said but it got me to thinking about us. Both of our mother’s maiden names were Howland. I have a younger brother who was named after our father so that made our father Clarence Asahel Rice, Senior. His initials were C.A.R.S. My wife’s father was Charles Albert Reese Skinner. Both had the same initials. My brother married my wife’s sister and that made him my brother-in-law. I am not aware of other genealogy programs but the one I use has a portion that can calculate relationships between 2 individuals. I attended all of the school on Route 49 in Tioga County, PA. except Knoxville. My wife and I did not become acquainted until the 11th grade. Obviously we eventually fell in love and married and have been so for 53+ years.

I would like to re-post this. What is the protocol for that?

This is very different from latch hook rugs but the two are often confused. Rug hooking is native to the Maritime provinces and is alive and well all over the world. Hooked rugs are made from yarn or wool strips while latch hooked rugs are made from small pieces of yarn. Genealogists always want correct information, so you might want to check this out a little further.
