Mike Watson: Queen Elizabeth Janes maybe 6,024 in line for throne
By Mike Watson
Billy Joe, Ed and Jim,
Trolling for ancestors, graveyards, unusual names, and general historical events have occupied my time and energies, though waning, for some decades. Billy Joe's Aunt Queen item has piqued my interest, as it has Jim's, and I had to do a bit of research--but I'm neither quite as quick nor agile as brother Jim.
I should not be too quick to dismiss a claim to the throne, for many on this side of the big pond may have a legitimate claim--albeit a minute one--to that Big Chair. Now, I did not go into specifics, but it think Aunt Queen Elizabeth Janes, nee Furkin, must have been in the neighborhood of 6,024th in line for the Throne of England. Not so far off, if one thinks of it.
Jim's breakdown of titled names was of interest to me, and I would like to add just a few. In past research I have unearthed (not literally): Price Albert, Queen Victoria, King Louis--though no number was given, Princess Ann, and King William. So the possibilities are tremendous. To be more American, I also found: General, Colonel, Major, Senator, Governor, Doctor, and Preacher.
Our regal ancestors and kinsmen must be remembered, enjoyed, and shared with others of like mind--or, as Randy Flowers was wont to say, "They will wiggle until you find them."
