RJO’s “Notable Kin” — American Authors

Genealogical links to various noted cousins, based largely on the work of Gary Boyd Roberts at the New England Historic Genealogical Society. See my main “Notable Kin” page for a complete listing.

Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

Emily DICKINSON (1830–1886) of Amherst, Massachusetts, was one of the greatest poets of the nineteenth century. We are eighth cousins three times removed by virtue of common descent from the Massachusetts immigrants Samuel MORSE and Elizabeth JASPER. In addition to the Morse/Jasper link shown below, we also share descent from the Massachusetts immigrants Henry ADAMS and Edith SQUIRE [Notable Kin 1: 198–208].

                Samuel MORSE (1596-1654)
              Elizabeth JASPER (1579-1655)
