Cousin marriages, just for fun

Cousin marriages always seem to fascinate people. Certainly my own family experience in this was my Aunt Norma, who married her 1st cousin, who had come from Norway to visit. I am told that my grandfather was not happy over this event, but it is very hard to stop two young people in love. This is a genealogy study, I am not a resource for cousin marriage information. Generally they are permitted by about half the states in the US, mostly in the south and East Coast. Good resources for cousin marriages are found at: cousincouples.com or cuddleinternational.org . (Thank you Tray for this link and good luck). There is a good explanation of consequences of cousin marriages at to be found at Wikipedia.

There are over 310 cousin marriages I have identified in the Chenoweth database. This list in not inclusive and I welcome any additions. In early times, because of the limited communities people lived in, marriages were commonly formed among neighboring friends or relatives.

The first cousin marriages in the Chenoweth Family occurred when 2 Ashbrook descendants of Mary(3) and Levi Ashbrook married two Chenoweth daughters of John(3) and Mary Smith. Mary was John's younger sister. Shortly there after three Chenoweth sons of William(3) William(2) married three Chenoweth daughters of William(4) John(3) John(2). The lines of John(4) William(3) John(2) in Randolph County, West Virginia teem with such cousin marriages.

Sometimes these cousin marriages cascade. In the case of the Chenoweth-Ashbrook marriages above, John Ashbrook and his cousin-wife, Mary Chenoweth, had a son William C. Ashbrook. William married his third cousin, Mary Chenoweth, the daughter of Absolom and Eleanor Duvall. Thus William had a wife, a mother, and a grandmother, all named Mary Chenoweths, each a generation apart.

But my favorites are the long reaches. Both are 6th cousin marriages. Opal B. Carter married her 6th cousin, Earl Henry Chenoweth, reuniting Hannah's line with her brother William(2). Then Ann Chenoweth Karraker married William Clements Chenoweth. I remember the ping in the program signaling this match when I dropped it in. Both are John(2) lines from Kentucky. Ann is line of Absolom(3). Her husband William Clements Chenoweth was from Arthur(3). Nancy Forsythe, her 1st cousin, told me the story. Bill was in the service in WW2 and stationed somewhere on the East Coast before the war. He looked up some Chenoweths in town and met Ann and, well they fell in love. What more can I say. I learned of 5th cousin marriage in Feb 2007, when calling Dorothy Morgan in Indiana. She told me that both herself and her husband had Chenoweth great grandmothers. When I put the information in, I found they were from two different lines of Thomas, joining the oldest son, John, to his brother Thomas, Jr.

Recently I found 3 other remote cousin relations. Unlike that of Opal and Earl, or William and Ann, the surname changes in these two are so numerous they are not readily discernble. When Walter Wesley Applegate married Lillie Mae Lockridge in Red Cloud, Webster Co., NE, he was marrying his 5th cousin once removed. Both are descendants of John Chenoweth and Mary Smith. Walter comes from Rachel(3) with the surname line of CHENOWETH-SEATON-WHITAKER-APPLEGATE. Lillie comes from Rachel's oldest brother William(3) and goes CHENOWETH-SIMMONS-LOCKRIDGE. A union between John(2) and Thomas(2) occured when William A. Stockwell married Pearl Leone Morrison in Oklahoma. This was a 6th cousin once removed marraige, the cousin relationship going back to the original family, and the common ancestor that of John Chenoweth and Mary Calvert. William's Surname line goes STOCKWELL>HOLLOWELL>CHENOWETH back to the Washington Co., IN lines of John IV. Pearl's Surname line goes MORRISON>DOWNING>CHENOWETH and the Pike Co., OH family of Mary Chenoweth and Timothy Downing. And even longer reach occurred when John Elvin Boyer, Jr. married his 7th cousin once removed, Lora Jean Lofgreen. Again he is from John(2), and she from Thomas(2). His surname line goes: CHENOWETH-ADAMS-REISINGER-SIMMONS-BOYER and hers: CHENOWETH-VAN CLEAVE-LOFGREEN. Like the Applegate-Lockridge marriage, this too occurred in Nebraska.

The two longest reaches for a cousin marriage to date are between 1) James Howard Larue and Shelly May Carter (They were married but briefly, and remain friends. They didn't know at the time that they were 8th cousins once removed) and 2) Joy Dorene Bonham and Phil Hirl who both descend from the Mayflower passenger Frances Cooke, making them 10th cousins once removed!

Another story in tracking cousin marriages is the case of John L. Ashbrook of Grany Co., KY. He married his 1st cousin Sarah Ann Readnour. But John's parents had also been first cousins: William Thomas Ashbrook m: Sarah E. Ferguson. There is one more combination in this as the grandparents of William Thomas Ashbrook, were John Ashbrook and Mary Chenoweth, probably the first known cousin marriage in the family. Three such unions in 4 generations is really "keeping it in the family." In The list of the 32 fifth-great grandparents of John L. Ashbrook, John Cheneoweth and Mary Calevrt show up 6 times.

For those confused about cousin terminology: First cousins have common grandparents, 2nd cousins common great grandparents, etc. Removed means a generational difference. The child of your first cousin is your first cousin one removed as there is a generation between you and the child. That child's child, your first cousin's grandchild, would be your 1st cousin twice removed.
