Is Stahancyk, Kent & Hook’s very own Vince Roman related to Charles Brown?Â
Recently, Vince traced one of his direct ancestral lines to a woman named Joanna Stanton nÃ©e Slocum b. 1672 in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Joanna was Vince’s 9th great grandmother. This got Vince thinking… “Wasn’t Charles Brown’s wife, Rebecca Brown nÃ©e Slocum, also from Rhode Island?.”
After comparing his tree to that of the Charles Brown family, he quickly discovered a common ancestor between he and Rebecca, that in a man named Giles Slocum b. 1623. This makes Vince and Rebecca a distant sixth cousins six times removed. What a small world!
Other descendants of Giles Slocum include Warren G. Harding and J.A. Folger, founder of the Folger Coffee Company.
