Three Nevins sisters were the start of a very confusing set of relationships. Hannah Nevins was the grandmother of Sarah Phelps. Sarah Nevins was the grandmother of Artemas Lucius Brooks. Tamasin Nevins was the grandmother of Artemas Brooks Woodworth(perhaps named after his much older second cousin). Thus the three (Artemas Lucius Brooks, Sarah Phelps and Artemas Brooks Woodworth) were second cousins.

Then, Artemus Lucius Brooks married his second cousin Sarah Phelps. Their daughter (and therefore their own second cousin once removed) was Lucia Mahalia Brooks. Artemas Brooks Woodworth became the son-in-law to his own two second cousins when he married his own second cousin once removed, Lucia M Brooks.
