The Mary Jones's of the World

So of the ten most common last names in the US, 7 of them are the last names of direct line ancestors. Sigh.

A bigger sigh when you consider my 6th great grandmother is Mary Jones. Walter Johnson is my great great grandfather. Martha Williams is my 4th great grandmother.

It's harder to find information on women than men. Especially when you are Mary Jones born in 1710. 

Really makes me appreciate some of the more unique names in my line: Utoka Violet Pearce or Argyle Johnson Stancil.
