    Leven Rambin and Willa Ford are 4th cousins

    Leven’s maternal 3rd great-grandparents, James Malcolm Sweat and Elizabeth Goff, were also Willa’s maternal 3rd great-grandparents.

    she had 2 grandparents of Spanish descent (and Alsatian ancestry too down the line), so Leven definitely has more than 1/32 Spanish ancestry

    Leven is likely related to this man: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Gil_Y%27Barbo
