What is a Cousin?

Cousins have unique relationships in our family history research. When is a cousin more than a cousin? What kind of cousin are they? How do I figure out those specific relationships? With the rise in popularity of DNA testing and the resulting match lists, we need to know how we relate to individuals beyond saying, "This is my cousin."

A good…

Hi Cheryl - I see you are related to the Perry Family. My last name is Avery but my DNA says I am really a Perry. I was wondering if you have ever seen the Avery name in with the Perrys. These Perrys in question were from Watertown Massachuisetts at one time. I don't think I was adopted.

Heather found some more info on the Fishers:

 
Elizabeth TAYLOR Fisher had a sister Esther Fisher. She married WENTWORTH TAYLOR son of John TAYLOR & Agnes ( aka Nancy )  Archibald.  ( This is Ed Taylor's line. He just lives about 10 minutes from my place. )
 
 
John Fisher s/o William gr-s/o John and his wife Elizabeth Cowley/ latest info says COPLEY had the following children:
        1. Isiah  aka Josiah Fisher b. Sept. 1764  Truro
        2. Sarah Milliken Fisher b. 25 June 176_
        3. Eleanor Fisher b. 14 Feb 1767
        4. Janet Fisher  b. 5 July 1769
        5. Margaret Fisher  b. 22 Aug. 1771 m. George FARNELL   ( had 12 children )
        6. Elizabeth TAYLOR Fisher b. 29 June 1775  m. Alexander Stewart
        7. William Handcock Fisher  b. 25 June 1777
        8. Hannah Fisher  b. 27 Aug 1779
        9. Ruth Fisher  b. 29 July 1781
    10. George S. Fisher b. 10 Dec. 1783

John Fisher ( #1 )  b. 2 Dec. 1675 & wife Sarah (unknown) had a son, Samuel Fisher who m .AGNESTAYLOR d/o Matthew & Janet TAYLOR Agnes was 1 of Samuel's 3 wives and she died early in their marriage.  Perhaps the "TAYLOR" comes from her.  Samuel was the brother of WILLIAM FISHER who m. Eleanor Archibald.
 
Margaret Fisher d/o William Fisher & Eleanor Archibald m. John Archibald 2nd . His parents were Samuel Archibald & ELEANOR TAYLOR. Another TAYLOR connection.
 
I, too, am a direct descendent of ELIZABETH TAYLOR FISHER through her marriage to ALEXANDER STEWART . She was actually b. 29 June 1775 in Truro.
 
ESTHER TAYLOR FARNELL was the d/o James Farnell & Sarah Gammell Stewart ...Sarah G. Stewart was the d/o Alexander & Elizabeth TAYLOR Fisher.
I descend through Sarah Gammell Stewart's brother, Archibald Stewart
 
Note: James Farnell, ESTHER'S father, was the son of MARGARET FISHER & George Farnell. Margaret was the d/o John Fisher & Elizabeth Cowley/Copley. She was Elizabeth TAYLOR Fisher's sister.
 
Sooo, relations intermarry & the TAYLOR names travels along with cousins, aunts, uncles etc.  A tangled web.
 
Heather
The above information comes from a good friend and cousin in reply to your post on my page.  She said I could share her e-mail address with you if you are interested.  Please let me know if you would like that information.  Also, there is a facebook page called "Descendants of Matthew and Janet Taylor".  Just search for the group and it's free to join, if you want.  
All the best!
Pat
