Interesting note: A seventh great-grandfather, Colonel Thomas Horton, and a sixth great-grandfather, Samuel Buswell, the former from her paternal line and the latter from her maternal line, were born within 10 km of each other in England (Saddington and Husbands Bosworth, Leicestershire, respectively). Both families came to New England in the mid-1600s, and no inter-marriages between these families appear in Jennie's direct line until her parents.
